One thing remains constant in Aristata Communications’ story— the importance of community. Aristata Communications, formerly Colorado Central Telecom/Crestone Telecom, was born from community. The residents within the town of Crestone were cut off from knowledge and access to resources without a solid internet connection, so they banded together to bring broadband to town. 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 has bridged 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.
Aristata is a local company dedicated to creating lasting impact in our community. We do what we say we’re going to do. We provide reliable connectivity to the people who depend upon us, and we follow the golden rule.
