ATC Communications (Albion Telephone Company) is a family owned and operated communications company nestled in the heart of Albion, Idaho.
The 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 that 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 Breslin's caring nature and spirit of service are the foundation of which ATC continues its operations today.
In 1954, the company expanded telephone lines into the outlying communities of Almo, Elba, and Malta. In 1965, Grandma Breslin's legacy was left in the hands of her grandson, ODeen Redman. Under ODeen's direction, 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, Albion Telephone Company changed its' name to ATC Communications.
ATC now serves over 3,000 subscribers in a 4000 square mile area in five counties and two states. The 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, the company began a multi-year project to replace all copper lines with fiber optics in the entire exchanges 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 its customers and offers speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
