As a local telephone subscriber, you are automatically a member/owner of Foothills Communications. Your cooperative’s goal is to provide the latest in telecommunication services at affordable prices; employing modern technology and up-to-date services, offering people choices to be successful and enhance their quality of life. Each time you subscribe to one of Foothills Communications’ services, you are not just becoming a customer, you are making an investment in a company you and your neighbors actually own.
As an owner of a telephone cooperative, you are entitled to certain benefits that are not available to customers of big name communications companies. One of those benefits include getting a share of the profits made by the cooperative; we call those profits “capital credits”.
It’s really quite simple, each time someone makes a call using Foothills Communications Long Distance or subscribes to services such as Voice Mail, High Speed Internet Service, Cable TV, or one of our many other services, they are investing in Foothills Communications’ future as well as their own.
When Foothills Communications makes a profit, that means you’ve just made a profit. Cooperatives are truly a unique business. Everyone has a stake in the success of a cooperative.
