Arkansas Telephone Company


ARTELCO™ began in 1908 and is celebrating over 110 years as an independently owned telephone company.  Nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains near the beautiful Greers Ferry Lake, Arkansas Telephone Company offers state-of-the-art telecommunications to Van Buren County and parts of Cleburne, Conway, Pope, Searcy, and Stone Counties.  Providing customers in Clinton, Fairfield Bay, Shirley, Scotland and surrounding communities with telecommunications to their rural customers, they pride themselves in leading the community in modern technology.


In 1992, the company began their wireless partnership with Alltel to provide the area with Cellular Service. In 1996, they became the first provider to the super highway of Internet service with ARTELCO™ Internet Services.

Our Mission is to provide our customers with unprecedented levels of service and our goals are to continue offering the latest developments in the telecommunications field.

Clinton, Arkansas is a rural community in the northwestern region of the state. The rural area is perfect for when you enjoy a small town feel, knowing your neighbors and spending time outside. However, as it is away from the larger metro areas of the state, it often goes overlooked for some important utilities, including broadband internet. However, you have the same exact needs for internet usage as people living in Little Rock, Dallas or Los Angeles. That is why it is important to understand the importance of A-CAM and how Artelco™ Services aims at delivering the kind of internet speed you and your family need.

Connecting You

Artelco™ Services is dedicated to connecting you to the internet. Our company wants to make sure you don’t overpay for speed you don’t need or select a package that’s not optimally designed for your internet requirements. Due to this, our customer service team at Artelco™ will sit down and work with you on exactly what you want to use your internet for.

During the initial consultation, you will be asked what you use your internet for. Do you only connect to it for basic online features and email? Perhaps you enjoy streaming Netflix or Hulu, or you have cut cable and now stream your favorite television channels while watching the Razorbacks and SEC football through ESPN and SEC Network streaming channels (or maybe you want to stream the services, but never had an internet connection strong enough to allow for this). At Artelco™ Services, all you need to do is let our customer service representatives know what you’re interested in, and our team will make sure you receive the right internet speed for all of your online requirements.

Just a Phone Call Away

Artelco™ Services is here to bring broadband internet to your home or business. It doesn’t matter if you live right downtown, in a neighborhood or your own land that is away from town. All you need to do is pick up your phone and give our team at Artelco™ Services a call at your earliest convenience. Our friendly customer service representatives will talk you through the process of ordering broadband. This way, no matter what your experience is with high-speed internet, our team will help you every step of the way.
