Who We Are
CATC Employees

“OWNED BY THOSE WE SERVE”

Reflects a strong commitment to our customers and our service area that has grown stronger through the years.

In 1951, Central Arkansas Telephone Cooperative, Inc. (CATC) was formed to provide telephone service to parts of rural Hot Spring County. After being denied service by privately owned telephone companies, residents of what is now CATC’s service area exercised their right under federal law to petition and establish what is now CATC.

After over 70 years of service, CATC is still offering service as one of only two telephone cooperatives in the State of Arkansas. Now, as in 1951, CATC strives to provide customers with quality, up-to-date telecommunications service at affordable rates.

Our motto “Owned By Those We Serve”, reflects a strong commitment to our customers and our service area that has grown stronger through the years. The original office was in the town of Donaldson, Arkansas and is still in operation today. As time progressed, growth made it necessary to expand to the Bismarck area. In 1995, the new business office was relocated to Bismarck at 4036 Highway 7.

CATC now offers a wide range of services outlined within this website. Currently, CATC proudly serves over 2,900 customers and is still growing. CATC is proud to serve the communities of Antioch, Bismarck, Brown Springs, Caney, Donaldson , Friendship, Marcus, Midway, New Deroche, Pleasant Hill, Point Cedar and Witherspoon. CATC is prepared to continue to offer innovative, technologically up-to-date service into the 21st Century at the least possible customer rates.

CATC is currently in the beginning stages of expanding its quality broadband & television to a large portion of Hot Spring County.
