TrioTel Announces Ownership in Mitchell Telecom

TrioTel and two other South Dakota broadband providers, known as ATV Holdings, LLC., are in the process of finalizing the purchase of Mitchell Telecom from Sancom, Inc. ATV, a combination of Alliance Communications, of Garretson, TrioTel, and Venture Communications, of Highmore, have joined forces to bring a fresh perspective, continued modern technology solutions, and added financial support for the further growth of the company. With over 180 combined years of experience in providing advanced services over sophisticated broadband networks, this offers a positive reinforcement for the Mitchell community.

“In the past I have had the privilege of calling many of the staff and customers of Mitchell Telecom my neighbors, friends, clients, and co-workers. Alliance Communications is excited to be involved in the community through Mitchell Telecom and its continued effort on providing the City of Mitchell with a reliable choice when it comes to broadband and communication services. I am excited we are investing in such an advanced communications network, growing and vibrant community and overall great group of people at Mitchell Telecom,” said Ross Petrick, General Manager of Alliance Communications.

“I’m confident the collective efforts and positive resources our three companies offer will ensure the continued success of Mitchell Telecom and its customers. We are very excited to work with the businesses and citizens of Mitchell to enhance their broadband experience and daily lives,” stated Bryan Roth, General Manager/CEO of TrioTel.

“Venture is thrilled with the opportunity to invest in a growing, energetic community. The network that is in place and the workforce serving the community is top-notch. We look forward to helping the citizens and businesses with their broadband needs,” said Randy Houdek, General Manager/CEO of Venture Communications Cooperative.

Mitchell Telecom will continue to operate out of its current business location in the Mitchell Palace Mall, located on North Main Street. Mitchell subscribers can expect no interruption of services or changing in price structure as the transition of ownership takes place.
