At PenTeleData, our fully redundant fiber optic network has more than 60 Points of Presence throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey delivering Voice, Video, Data and Internet services. One of our greatest assets is being locally owned - it allows us to make decisions faster and support our customers better. We don't outsource our support and since we own Pennsylvania's largest privately owned fiber optic network, it gives us a lot of leverage to deploy reliable, scalable fiber based solutions.
Founded in 1994, we are a strategic partnership of local cable and telephone companies, including Service Electric Cable TV and Communications, Service Electric Cablevision, Ironton Telephone and Blue Ridge Communications.
Using our nearly 10,000+ miles of fiber optics for our tens of thousands of customers, we serve all facets of business, including banking, healthcare, education, government and retail sales.

From our fully redundant connections to peering with large national content providers, we make sure that our connections are always available. Whether it's for online banking, research, telehealth, or retail sales, our solutions work in the background and are always backed by the support of our 24/7 Network Control Center. In addition, we have Community Wi-Fi Hotspots in 17 counties across our serving area as a free benefit for our partner broadband customers.

At PenTeleData, we work hard to continue the pioneering traditions that began with John Walson of Service Electric and Claude Reinhard of Blue Ridge Communications. In the 1940s and 1950s, they were the first to place antennas atop the mountains to improve television reception and bring cable television to valley cities. Since then, there have been many advances in the telecommunications industry. PenTeleData and our partners have always been at the forefront of those emerging technologies.
We are also proud to continue the practice of giving tens of thousands of dollars back to our community for many worthwhile causes, ranging from donations to non-profit organizations to funding expansions for new treatment specific wings at hospitals.
Going forward, PenTeleData will continue to grow and meet the demands of all business sectors.
