Aristata (Pinus aristata) is the scientific term for the Rocky Mountain bristlecone pine, a native conifer that grows in communities throughout the South-Central Rockies. Known for its resiliency, it thrives in some of Colorado’s most rugged terrain.
The arrowhead incorporates the region’s historical roots—the first natives to the area were the Ute people—and the direction of the arrowhead points toward progress.
The combined logo mark is a nod to the region and the resilience of its people while tying in the importance of those who have come before us, community, and connectivity.
Formerly Colorado Central Telecom and Crestone Telecom, Aristata Communications was born from community.
The residents within the town of Crestone banded together to bring broadband to town after realizing they were cut off from knowledge and access to resources without a solid internet connection. It was truly a grassroots effort when neighbors pitched in with start-up capital to get the company off the ground.
When service reached Methodist Mountain, perched at over 11,000 feet along the Continental Divide, it became the catalyst for providing high-speed, reliable internet across the region. Over the years, service has expanded to reach underserved areas like Salida, Maysville, Chalk Creek Canyon, Twin Lakes, Cotopaxi, and Westcliffe in the Wet Mountain Valley.
Today, Aristata Communications works diligently to bridge the digital divide between urban and rural America and provides internet and communications services to nearly 5,000 customers throughout five counties in the Central and South-Central Rocky Mountains including Lake, Chaffee, Fremont, Custer, and Huerfano Counties.
