    Historical Context

    The first service of any real extent in Arizona were built around 1900 by the Sunset Telephone and Telegraph Company, a Bell Company of California. They built exchanges at Phoenix, Tucson, Prescott and some of the smaller adjacent towns, connecting them by long distance lines in which redwood poles of excellent quality were used.

    This company later sold its lines in the state to a local company who slowly built more lines and exchanges and purchased a few others. This company in 1911 became the Arizona Telephone and Telegraph Company, and operated over the largest territory of any company in the State. They had exchanges at Nogales, Tucson, Clinton, Safford, Globe, Florence, Yuma, Mesa, Tempe, Phoenix, Buckeye, Glendale, Prescott, Humboldt and Jerome. All of these exchanges were presumed to be connected by long distance lines, but many of these were entirely out of order, giving little or no service at all.

    In 1912, the Arizona Telephone and Telegraph Company was acquired by the Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Company.
