Administrative history

The Airdrie Mutual Telephone Co. Ltd. was incorporated on May 1, 1935 to take over Alberta Government Telephones' rural telephone service around Airdrie. As part of an economy measure, AGT turned over the maintenance and operation of the rural circuits, while maintaining control over standards, updating of equipment and supplies. In 1969 AGT began a program of connecting the rural mutual companies to the network by underground cables. As a result, the Airdrie Mutual Telephone Co. Ltd. was liquidated. The company closed its books May 9, 1974.
