Welcome to the Highland Telephone Cooperative Website
In the early 1900's, in much of the rural area and communities which the Cooperative serves, telephone service was either very deteriorated or nonexistent. In Highland County, the need for a central legal entity led to the chartering of Mutual Telephone of Highland, Inc. on February 13, 1905.
To help keep our community better connected HTC is now offering 12 party conference calling to our members. For more information please call the business office at 468-2131.

The fiber optic to the premises project is continuing in our service areas. Construction of fiber optic cables will include the entire Mill Gap (499) exchange and continue east along Route 84 before finishing at Vanderpool. Other areas include Meadowdale Rd and the southern end of Dug Bank Rd. ER Excavating & Utilities located in Moorefield, WV will be the contractor HTC has acquired for completing the majority of the construction. ER Excavating & Utilities will be attaching the fiber cable to your premises, however, HTC personnel will contact you to complete the connection to the inside of the home by appointment at a later date. HTC does not anticipate any service interruptions during the construction phase or installation period.
The purpose of the project is to replace the existing HTC service in the home with a new fiber optic broadband network, therefore, providing the customer with faster and more reliable broadband speeds. The contractors are responsible for leaving the property to the homeowner’s expectations. If there are any obstructions that HTC needs to be aware of, or if necessary to schedule a site visit for relocation, please contact the HTC Business Office at 540-468-2131 to discuss the matter. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this construction phase and look forward to continuing to provide the latest in telecommunication services.
