Who are we?

From horse cart to Light Technology Amherst Communications was started by the people of this community over 115 years ago and became well known as Amherst Telephone Company. Today we have grown into so much more, now offering Internet, TV & phone. There's something special about doing business with people who live in your community. In central Wisconsin people care about each other, and that drives our business practices first and foremost. Here are just some of the local causes that we contribute to.
Fiber: This technology is able to transmit data much faster, upto 240M, over greater distances. Since it is glass and cannot generate electricity, fiber is immune to all sorts of interference. It is less vulnerable to electrical interference while putting out a superior performance. This is considered to be the infrastructure of the future and therefor increases home values.
Copper: If Fiber is not available, you can often get service through Copper lines. Although Copper has been in use since the early 1900s, the technology carrying your information has been updated to keep up with the times. Copper customers can now get internet connections up to 10Mbps!


My internet used to work just fine but now...

  • Households have more devices on WiFi.
  • Programs on computers and mobile need more bandwidth.
  • Online activities require larger upload speeds than available on Copper.
  • Appliances in many homes now require an internet connection.
  • 67% of people use WiFi for cell devices at home.
  • Over 50% of TV watchers surf the net while watching TV

The cost of satellite TV and Internet Data is killing me!

  • You will save big with the unlimited data on Fiber Optic service
  • Enjoy over 114 TV channels, HD & DVR bundled conveniently with internet & phone.
