More than 60 years ago, the Hilliary Family acquired a small telephone company in rural southwest Oklahoma. In the decades that followed, technology advanced, as did customer demands. Under the leadership of the Hilliary Family, now in its third generation, the company has grown from a single exchange with just 100 access lines covering 22 square miles to now serving more than 8,000 customers in 14 exchanges, covering 3,268 square miles (roughly the size of Yellowstone National Park). The company also offers IP television service and internet speeds up to 1 Gig. Hilliary Communications continuously researches the marketplace for innovations and strives to improve underdeveloped areas, offering services that exceed customer expectations.
