Our History

1991

· Americell PA-3 Limited Partnership formed

· Acquired the FCC License for Rural Service Area PA-3 covering Potter, Tioga and Clinton Counties

1992

· Received $8,000,000 in financing to build a cellular network in Northern Pennsylvania

· Installed a telecommunications switch and launched service in Lock Haven, Clinton County

1993

· Built a tower overlooking Mansfield and turned on the first wireless cellular service in Tioga County

· Built a tower in Northern Tioga County overlooking Tioga

· Began selling service to local residents of Tioga County as Cellular One of Tioga through agents such as Smith's Radio Shack, Roupp's Gulf, Wheeler's Automotive as well as other small local businesses.

1994

· Cellular One of Tioga County entered into reciprocal agreements with over 300 cellular carriers in the US and Canada allowing cellular customers from these areas the ability to use their phones while traveling in Northern Pennsylvania. At the same time Cellular One of Tioga County's customers now had the ability to use their phones almost everywhere in North America.

1995

· Cellular One of Tioga County launched service in the Wellsboro area by turning on a tower south of Wellsboro on an existing tower on Goat Ranch Hill along route 287.

· Cellular One of Tioga County donated numerous phones and service to many fire departments and ambulance squads in Tioga County. The donation value just to Wellsboro was over $25,000.

1996

· When more coverage was needed in Tioga County, Cellular One worked closely with the Tioga County Commissioners. The result was a new tower on Bloss Mountain that was paid for in its entirety by Cellular One of Tioga County and then donated to Tioga County. The total cost of the Bloss tower and all of the associated construction was over $150,000. All at no cost to the taxpayers.

1997

· Cellular One of Tioga County began the process of upgrading our system to digital. A new financing facility totaling $13,000,000 was secured and Tioga County became one of the first rural areas with digital cellular service. We launched digital service here before many Pennsylvania cities such as Harrisburg and Allentown.

1998

· The upgrade to digital was completed and the first calls were made. Much of 1998 was spent learning the new digital system and optimizing our system.

· Cellular One of Tioga County opened its first store in the county in Mansfield.

1999

· The Cellular One name was used nationally until 1999 when AT&T decided to leave the Cellular One group and relabeled its service as AT&T Wireless.

· Cellular One of Tioga County improved it's coverage in Wellsboro by placing antenna on the WNBT radio tower on Park Hill. Since we did not build a new tower, the launch of our Wellsboro system went mostly unnoticed. Many local residents found that AT&T Wireless phones were now working in town and began buying phones in Williamsport and Elmira.

· Verizon Wireless built their first tower in Mansfield and began providing service in Tioga County for the first time, nearly 7 years after Indigo.

2000

· After using the Park Hill tower for 8 or 9 months Cellular One decided to move our antenna from Park Hill to Addies Knob in Wellsboro. We found that because of the higher elevation the new location provided far superior service to the borough and the surrounding area.  Our antennas are still on this site today and have been for 7 years.

· Southwestern Bell and Bell South stopped using the Cellular One name and joined to become Cingular Wireless. At this point we changed our name as well from Cellular One of Tioga County to Indigo Wireless.

2001

· Indigo Wireless launched service in the Westfield area.

2002

· Indigo Wireless opened a new Mansfield store on Main St.

· Indigo Wireless focused on improving coverage in all three counties.

2003

· Indigo Wireless worked closely with AT&T Wireless and purchased the licenses for Bradford, Wyoming and Sullivan Counties in Northern PA.

· Service was launched in Bradford and Wyoming Counties.

2004

· Indigo Wireless began another multi million dollar technology upgrade and launched GSM service in all of its service area. This now allowed data features to handsets and laptops.

· Indigo Wireless opened its new store at the entrance to Wal-Mart in Mansfield.

2005

· Indigo Wireless, using existing towers along Route 6, launched service on the towers at Wellsboro Junction, Asaph and Gaines. We also launched service in the Galeton area using the roof top of an existing building.

· Indigo Wireless now offered service from Coudersport to Factoryville along Route 6. There are some large gaps in the service from Coudersport to Galeton as well as some other smaller gaps but Indigo Wireless absolutely offers the most coverage along Route 6 in Northern Pennsylvania.

2006

· Indigo Wireless continued to show its commitment to Tioga County by leasing 4000 square feet of office and retail space at 64 Main St. here is Wellsboro.

· Indigo Wireless added coverage in Tioga County by placing antennas on the existing towers in Whitneyville, Morris and Tioga.

2007

· Indigo Wireless continued to operate in Tioga County and has constantly been the first to provide cellular service to most rural areas in Tioga County. By 2007 Indigo Wireless employs 21 people who work and live in Tioga County with very good paying professional positions that include excellent benefits. Indigo also uses local contractors and suppliers for all of its construction work.

· The number of Indigo subscribers continues to grow throughout 2007. Indigo now provides service to thousands of local Tioga County residents as well as continue to offer our system to customers of Cingular, AT&T, Dobson Cellular One, T-Mobile and many other smaller carriers across North America.

2008

· Indigo Wireless begins work on a series of upgrades to better serve our customers.  Indigo Management holds the line on price increases keeping Indigo affordable for all during a time when many wireless companies increased the price of their cell phone service. 

· Indigo continues to invest in our community by supporting a number of local organizations and events including the Laurel Festival and the Winter Jazz Festival.  Indigo was also a Diamond Sponsor of the Endless Mountain Music Festival.
