About Strata Networks
STRATA Networks was founded in 1948 when a few residents, who lived in the remote portions of the Uintah Basin, undertook an effort to bring phone service to their homes. The telephone company at the time refused to provide service to these areas due to low population density, coupled with rough terrain and the high cost to build infrastructure. Although they faced several challenges, these individuals took action and formed a board. With the board formed, the residents established a cooperative to obtain services otherwise not available to rural customers.
The STRATA Network’ cooperative, headquartered in Roosevelt, Utah, has grown to employ close to 300 people and provides a variety of technologically advanced services. This technology has helped revitalize the local economy and revolutionize the industry for Uintah Basin residents. STRATA continues to expand and offer leading-edge services including nationwide wireless coverage, the fastest broadband internet in the Basin, advanced TV, and their flagship home telephone service. STRATA has become the leading telecommunications provider not only in the Uintah Basin, but their coverage also extends into parts of Wyoming and Colorado, serving over 60,000 customers.
