Traditional Telephone Service

Nobody knows telephone phone service quite like OmniTel. We’re a local phone company with 100 years of experience in providing our customers with reliable service at a great price.

Unlimited Calling Within 14 Communities

OmniTel defines “local calls” a bit differently than other phone companies. With OmniTel, “local” means “within our network,” and our network has 14 communities that are all considered “local.” They are:

Nora Springs
Rudd
Rockford
Marble Rock
Plymouth

Rockford
Greene
Rock Falls
Stacyville
St Ansgar

Little Cedar
McIntire
Riceville
New Haven

For example, when an OmniTel telephone customer in Nora Springs calls another OmniTel telephone customer in St. Ansgar, the call is considered “local,” and there are no long distance toll charges.

When calling an EAS (extended area service) exchange, simply dial the 7-digit telephone number. Do NOT dial DDD Access “1” or the operator when placing EAS calls, or you will be charged for long distance.
