Delivering World-Class Internet Connections

For 118 years, Minburn Communications has been paving the way for superior telecommunications in Iowa. Founded in January 1903 by local businessmen and farmers, the Minburn Mutual Telephone Company’s stockholders purchased and installed cable lines along poles and fence lines to create a new telephone system. In 1963, this old string and pole system was converted to an all-buried, single-party telephone exchange, making Minburn Telephone one of the first in the U.S. Since then, the company has grown to include the subsidiaries of Minburn Telecommunications, Minburn Cablevision, and Dallas County Wireless, all of which are d/b/a Minburn Communications.

Over these years, the company has worked hard to be both innovative and progressive in advancing the technology and tools necessary to meet the evolving needs of our customers and the communities we serve. Today, Minburn Communications is a Certified Gig-Capable telecommunications provider that delivers Voice, Video Entertainment TV, Broadband Internet, Fixed Wireless Internet and Business Phone Solutions to customers in Minburn, Woodward, Perry and rural Dallas County.

On a mission to connect Iowans

Our mission is to connect our customers to the world with advanced communication technologies and solutions. At last count, Minburn Communications has over 230 fiber route miles currently in the ground that pass by over 1,400 locations. Adding to the fiber network is a series of towers that deliver a direct Fixed Wireless connection to remote, rural areas across Dallas County. And we won’t stop there. Plans are underway to expand our fiber footprint in Perry and surrounding communities.

Every day, we strive to improve the ways our customers communicate, while working to enrich the communities in which we work, live and play. The vision set over 116 years ago remains today to deliver a World-Class Connection with a Hometown Touch!
