Fast, reliable internet in
rural communities

Company History

Chartered in 1951 as the Santa Rosa Telephone Cooperative, Inc., Syntrio has grown from a farmer’s dream for telephone service in Wilbarger County, Texas, to an innovative technology company that connects dozens of rural communities in North Texas and Southern Oklahoma to the rest of the world.

By 1995, the company consisted of 14 exchanges across Texas and Oklahoma. By 1999, we began building fiber optic lines, plants, and equipment. In 2001, we began installing fiber to the premise for customers to receive telephone, IPTV, and high-speed internet up to 10GB with plenty of additional bandwidth for future applications. In 2006, our team began the early stages of building fiber-to-the-home technology to deliver ultra-fast internet speeds to our customers.

It was 2019 when Santa Rosa Communications acquired wireless internet company, Pinnacle Network Solutions, and managed service provider, PCnet, to further expand services to customers in Texas and Oklahoma.

In 2022, the Santa Rosa Family of Companies rebranded under one name, Syntrio, while vowing to remain a pillar in rural communities and continuing to provide innovation beyond city limits.
