Who is Wilkes Communications?

What started as a group of local Wilkes County citizens in 1949 petitioning to Central Telephone Company for service has evolved into a communications company offering your traditional home telephone plus High Speed Internet and Digital TV over a Fiber-to-the-Prem network, safety and security with Wilkes Security and a full lineup of business solutions. Those 23 people who first met on April 13, 1951 to hear representatives of the North Carolina and Federal REA speak in regards to officially forming this rural telephone cooperative are forever part of the great things Wilkes Communications, Inc. has and will continue to do.

What is Fiber?

Fiber optic is a state-of-the-art technology that uses bundles of glass threads to transmit information as light signals.  A fiber optic network has the ability to carry much more information than traditional copper wire networks.

In copper networks, information is passed along as electrical signals, which can cause interference within the bundle of wiring.  The light signals in a fiber do not interfere with other fibers in that bundle allowing for clearer phone conversations, faster internet connections, and sharper TV reception.  Because fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) provides the fastest internet available, you can transfer large packets of information quickly and with ease.

Overbuilding a copper network with a state of the art fiber optic network takes time and planning.  Wilkes Communications is committed to ensuring that you have connections to the things that matter most.  With speeds of up to 1 Gig available on an all FTTH network, you have access to a very impressive and celebrated digital life.
