ATC Communications (Albion Telephone Company) is a family-owned and operated communications company nestled in the heart of Albion, Idaho. Our company originated back in 1929, with only 18 magneto crank telephones, a handful of broken down pine poles, and a few hundred feet of iron wire. Since this was before the invention of landline dial tones, "Grandma Breslin" personally sat at the switchboard 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. She became fondly known as "Central" to everyone in the area, as she connected calls for over 35 years. During this time, she also served as the town's only nurse, providing medical aid to anyone in need. Grandma Jeannette Breslin's caring nature and spirit of service are the foundation on which ATC continues its operations today.

In 1943 Jeannette's son, Victor, took over the reins and managed operations for the next 20 years. Under Victor's lead we expanded telephone lines into the outlying communities of Almo, Elba, and Malta. In 1965, the family legacy was passed onto Victor's son, ODeen Redman. The company continued to grow and expand, with the purchase of the Holbrook Exchange in 1967 and the addition of the Raft River Exchange in 1976.

 

 

 

In October of 1996, Albion Telephone Company purchased the exchanges in Arco, Howe, Moore, Mackay, and Malad from US West. Just a few short years later we changed our name to ATC Communications.

Today ATC serves over 3,000 subscribers in a 4,000 square mile area, covering five counties and two states. Our company still operates under family ownership and management with ODeen's wife, Darla Redman, serving as President, ODeen's brother, Barry, serving as Treasurer, and ODeen's son, Rich Redman, as Vice President and General Manager.

Starting in 2014, we began a multi-year project to replace all copper lines with fiber optics in the entire exchange of Albion and Malad. In 2017, the fiber project extended into the Arco service area as well. ATC Communications now provides high-speed Internet to over 99% of our customers and offers speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
