Bloomingdale Communications has a rich and lengthy history. At our start, we worked to ensure that every home had a phone in Bloomingdale Township. Over time, the company found itself acquiring several local phone companies. Bloomingdale Communications was a growing company.
In the 1990s, the company began offering internet through DSL service. Today, we are upgrading to fiber internet throughout our service area which includes areas outside of Bloomingdale Township borders by several miles and a separate service area in Paw Paw and Mattawan.
