RYE, N.Y. – LICT Corporation’s (“LICT”, OTC Pink ®: LICT) wholly owned subsidiary CentraCom, has agreed to acquire Manti Telephone Company (MTC) and its sister companies, Manti Tele Communications Company (MTCC), and AFConnect (AFI). The Manti transaction is scheduled to close on October 31, 2023. MTC will close pending regulatory approval.
CentraCom is celebrating 120 years in business. It is headquartered in Fairview, Utah and provides broadband data, video, and voice communications to over sixty cities throughout rural Utah.
Manti Telephone Company has provided communication services in Manti and Sterling, Utah, for over a century, and expanded into Ephraim, Utah in the 1990s. In 2022, MTC further expanded its reach by acquiring AFConnect, an internet service provider in American Fork, Utah, known for its continuous growth in providing fiber-to-the-home internet services.
Expanding CentraCom’s statewide fiber network footprint to the rural communities of Manti, Sterling, Ephraim, and beyond, supports the growth of business and residential access to advanced communication services.
The acquisition is part of LICT’s strategic initiative and reinforces our commitment to deliver high-quality communication services to the communities we serve. LICT continues to actively seek partnerships with other companies in and outside its current service areas to deliver fast, reliable digital speed.
