About Strata Networks

Our History

Strata Networks, owned by UBTA-UBET Communications Inc., was founded in 1948 when a group of residents living in the remote areas of the Uintah Basin came together to bring phone service to their homes. The existing telephone company refused to serve these regions at the time due to low population density, challenging terrain, and high infrastructure costs. Undeterred by these challenges, the residents formed a Board, establishing a cooperative to provide essential services unavailable to rural customers.

Headquartered in Roosevelt, Utah, Strata Networks has experienced significant growth and employs over 350 people. The company offers a wide range of technologically advanced services that have revitalized the local economy and revolutionized industries for residents of the Uintah Basin. Strata continues to expand its reach and provides cutting-edge services such as nationwide wireless coverage, the fastest broadband internet in the area, advanced TV options, and its flagship home telephone service.

Additionally, Strata Networks is at the forefront of deploying fiber networks for multiple municipalities across Utah. Recognizing the growing demand for high-speed connectivity, the company is actively working to establish robust fiber infrastructure, providing reliable and lightning-fast internet access to both urban and rural communities. This forward-thinking approach positions Strata Networks as a pioneer in bridging the digital divide and enabling Utah residents to thrive in the digital age.

Strata Networks is a cooperative.

What is a cooperative, and what are the benefits of a member?

Membership

A cooperative is a modern organization where owners and users are the same and known as members or patrons. When customers choose to purchase landline or broadband services from Strata, they have the opportunity to become valued members. Strata embraces inclusivity, offering membership to anyone within their service area, regardless of race, religion, gender, or political beliefs.

As members, individuals enjoy several privileges. They have the power to participate in cooperative matters through voting actively. They also have the chance to run for a seat on the organization’s board of directors, ensuring their voices shape the cooperative’s direction.

Additionally, members share in the cooperative’s success by receiving an annual patronage check. This check is distributed when the cooperative generates profits from its efficient operations. By fostering this cooperative structure, Strata empowers its members to have a tangible stake in the organization’s success and prosperity.

Community

At Strata, we are a community-based business that supports local economic growth by hiring area residents and keeping capital within the community. Our primary goal is to assist our members with the initiatives that are most important to them. To give back to the community, we sponsor the Annual Charity Golf Classic, which has raised over $300,000 for the benefit of local charitable organizations.

As part of our mission to foster future generations’ educational and career paths, we have pledged donations to UBTech College to support programs that focus on an all-encompassing information technology-based curriculum. These efforts are geared towards providing relevant training and preparing students for a technology-driven workforce. Additionally, we invest in emerging leaders by giving several annual scholarships to local high school students. We also offer opportunities for area youth to develop leadership skills through our fully-funded Foundation for Rural Services (FRS) Tour to Washington, D.C., and the URECA Youth Leadership Challenge.
