About 3 Rivers Communications

3 Rivers Communications, with corporate headquarters in Fairfield, MT, is a telecommunications company originally founded in 1953 as a rural telephone cooperative. Still a cooperative at its core, 3 Rivers has grown and diversified over the years and now offers long distance, local dial-up Internet, High Speed Internet, combined wireless broadband and local phone, digital TV, satellite high speed Internet, and competitive local telephone service in addition to traditional local telephone service.

As a cooperative 3 Rivers operates according to time honored traditions. Co-ops were first created and are still formed today because people understand that if they join with others they have more power and more choices than if they stand alone.

Co-ops come in all shapes and sizes from local small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, but they all share seven basic principles:

  • voluntary and open membership,
  • democratic organization with "one member-one vote",
  • participation from the members in the economic health of the coop,
  • provide training and education to members,
  • collaborate with other co-operatives,
  • an independent business structure controlled by the members,
  • support of the community.

3 Rivers offers membership to anyone within our serving area without regard to race, religion, gender or political beliefs. Today your membership is automatic and FREE! When 3 Rivers was formed in 1953, a membership to join 3 Rivers Telephone Cooperative cost almost a week's salary. Those original members made an actual, significant investment in the co-op. Although 3 Rivers no longer requires an investment for membership, we're still working for you and treating you as an investor. So when 3 Rivers makes a profit the money is returned to our members through capital credits. Your membership in the 3 Rivers Cooperative provides you with solutions to your basic communication needs, and makes you a partner in the companies continued success. Feels kind of good to know you're that important, huh?
