About Great Plains Communications

Our Story

Founded in 1910 by E.C. Hunt as a Nebraska phone company, Great Plains Communications has evolved over the past century into a telecommunications service provider, keeping pace with technology and increasing bandwidth demands to become a leading regional fiber optic network services provider.
Today Great Plains Communications is one of the largest privately owned telecommunications solution providers in the Midwest, serving over 200 communities in Nebraska and Southeastern Indiana. Our business and enterprise services range from traditional and cloud-based voice and data products to installation and support of large networks with fully scalable managed Ethernet solutions. Using custom-build strategies and superior engineering, we meet the unique needs of wholesale and carrier customers, including regional and national carriers, LECs, ISPs, wireless carriers and other telecommunications providers. Residential services include high-speed Internet, cable TV and local and long-distance telephone services. Driving it all is an extensive 13,500-mile, MEF-certified regional fiber ringed network reaching 11 states – all supported by a 24x7x365 Network Operations Center.

Great Plains Communications is headquartered in Blair, Nebraska and is owned by Grain Management, LLC: a leading private equity firm focused on investments in the communications sector.
