Growing as our community and state have grown since 1922, Smithville is now Indiana's largest independent telecommunications broadband provider!

In 1969 we began to invest more than ever in our region and acquired 12 exchanges. By 1991, all of those exchanges were digital! Our fiber-optic ring also entered service in 1991, linking together the Ellettsville digital switching center, Stanford digital switching center, Smithville digital switching center, and Indiana Bell Bloomington facilities.

By 1998, Smithville started offering long-distance service, and in 2000 we began offering DSL services to our customers. Our newest division, Smithville Digital, was launched in 2004, providing the most sophisticated technological services for businesses and their networking needs.

No matter how we grow or change, Smithville remains connected to our roots in our communities and our state!

Smithville takes pride in being part of the community that it serves.

Responsible for the first interactive full motion distance learning hookup in the state by tying Eastern High School in Greene County to Edgewood High School in Monroe County, Smithville helped these schools teach German to both sets of students at one time.

From staying connected with local events to keeping up with the advancing telecommunication technologies, Smithville keeps in touch with the world around it, all while maintaining a sense of local pride.

Participating with and supporting our customers and neighbors is a part of Smithville's service philosophy. Our commitment is more than just providing services for you, your family or your business!

We live in the communities we serve, so you know that you're talking to someone who can understand your needs and connect the dots to your solution. We believe in being a good neighbor by giving back to the people we serve by donating money AND time to local schools, Little Leagues and other community sports, our local libraries, and arts and music programs!

As a company and family owned business for over 80 years, our values are rooted in the communities we serve. We are invested in all aspects of the community from economic development to arts and charities.
