About Salina-Spavinaw Telephone Co
Local people delivering powerful voice and data solutions.
Salina-Spavinaw Telephone Co. is a locally owned and operated independent telephone company. Founded in 1945 by Thomas and Addie Sheard, the company is run today by the Sheards' daughters, Janet and Nancy. SST has grown into the largest commercial employer in Salina and serves about 6,000 customers in its six-exchange, 600-square-mile service territory.
SST's power lies in local people, local offices and local customer service. During business hours, when customers call they will always find a live customer service representative on the line. SST's smaller size and family-owned focus yields advantages over larger companies. It remains competitive by continually upgrading its technology and by providing the best customer service possible. SST recognizes it wouldn't exist without its customers and continues to believe that service is the key ingredient to long-term success.
