December 10, 1963 — Art Brothers was permitted a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity from the Utah Public Service Commission, and the Silver Beehive Telephone Company was born.
Beehive was founded to bring “modern telecommunications” to rural areas in Utah and Nevada. Brothers hand-built the first long-distance line from Grouse Creek to Lucin, Utah. He climbed every pole, hung every cross arm, strung every piece of wire on every insulator, bringing telephone service to Grouse Creek for the first time ever.
Art Brothers’ passion for bringing telecommunication to rural Utah and Nevada has been passed down to each member of the Beehive Company. Today, instead of connecting phone wires, Beehive Broadband delivers high-speed fiber-optic internet that allows rural communities faster, clearer internet access as well as services like digital voice for clearer phone connections and digital streaming services through BEEtv.
Beehive Broadband was started with the dream of making intercommunication between people and communities simpler, faster and clearer, and the dream continues to drive the company and its employees today.
