Archtop Fiber recently completed the acquisition of Hancock Telephone Company, a family-owned telecommunications provider based in Hancock, New York. Through this acquisition, Archtop Fiber will provide telecommunications services to customers throughout Hancock’s Delaware County, New York, and northeastern Pennsylvania service area and beyond.

“Hancock Telephone has a longstanding reputation for innovation and unparalleled customer service. The fiber network they built is a perfect fit for Archtop, and we can’t wait to expand their fiber reach even further,” said Jeff DeMond, Chairman and CEO of Archtop Fiber. “The Wrighter family has fulfilled the communication needs of the Hancock community for over a century and built an amazing company full of talented, passionate people who we are glad to be working with. Robert Wrighter Sr. leaves an indelible mark on this community and industry that will surely serve as an example for years to come in terms of leadership and vision. We are looking forward to what the future holds for the residents and businesses Hancock Telephone serves.”

Archtop Fiber hosted a reception to celebrate the milestone and allow members of the Archtop team to get to know their new colleagues better. The gathering was held at the historic Hancock House Hotel’s Maple Room Restaurant.

Archtop Fiber President and Chief Operating Officer Lenny Higgins; Chief Development Officer Shawn Beqaj; and Chief Customer Officer Diane Quennoz praised the Wrighter family’s leadership and highlighted the company’s successes over the years since its founding more than a century ago. They also went over plans to expand Hancock’s footprint into Sullivan County and farther into Pennsylvania. 

During the celebration, Archtop also unveiled Hancock’s new logo and name, Hancock Fiber, which reflects the important role fiber has in serving residents and businesses in Hancock’s Delaware County, New York and northeastern Pennsylvania service area — and beyond.
