The History of PMT
Project Mutual Telephone Company has provided continuous telephone service in the Mini-Cassia area since 1916. When PMT was organized with 34 telephone customers, it based its future on providing quality service to its members. In 1956, PMT installed its first local direct dial telephone system. The system served approximately 1,700 customers and was state-of-the-art technology for the time. In 1962, direct dial long distance was added. PMT was one of the first companies west of the Mississippi to offer all one party phone lines.
The 1970s and 1980s produced continued growth for PMT. The information age was in full swing, and again, PMT responded by adding updated technologies. The first digital central office in Idaho, fiber optic cable, and expanded features were added for continued member satisfaction. By the end of 1983, all of PMT’s systems were interconnected through a completely digital network.
In the late 1990s, service was expanded into Burley, Oakley, and Heyburn. In 2004, PMT expanded an all-fiber network into Twin Falls, and now serves several anchor businesses in the area and several residential customers on the canyon rim. In 2008, PMT launched their computer service and repair division, PMT Tech Force. In 2014, PMT expanded its fiber network again to serve businesses in the city of Jerome.
Today, PMT is a full-service communication/broadband company, providing local and long distance telephone service, high speed internet, computer service and repair for home or business, computer networking, phone systems, cloud services, and digital cable television service.
