The Warwick Valley Telephone Company had been around for more than a century when, several years ago, it began conducting business as Alteva.
But most of its clients in this area continued to refer to the firm as it had been called for 111 years.
On Aug. 4, Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton and members of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce joined the company’s General Manager Marie Corlett and Product Manager Jean Beattie along with other employees of the firm to celebrate the return to its original name with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Warwick Valley Telephone, also known as WVT, was incorporated in 1902 and operated under that name for 110 years.
In 2011 WVT purchased Alteva; a Voip service provider.
And in 2013 the name was changed to Alteva to meet the company’s vision of a global presence in the telecommunications industry and to portray a positive image to customers.
However, that name change did not appeal to its long-time local New York and New Jersey customers and businesses that had worked with WVT for decades.
In 2015 Alteva was purchased by Momentum Telecom.
And its executives heeded the requests from local customers and former shareholders and agreed to return the name of the Warwick segment of its company back to the original, Warwick Valley Telephone.
Today Warwick Valley Telephone (WVT) is a leading regional telecommunications provider operating in Orange County and northern New Jersey.
WVT provides traditional voice service, internet/broadband services, hosted communications solutions and fiber services and resells DirecTV service in the tri-state region. It also offers specialized bundles for consumers and small businesses as well as advanced business communications solutions for medium to large businesses.
