UNGGVTC ready to distribute $4 million
Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative, Inc. will distribute $4,093,500.38 in capital credits to its member-owners this year.
GVTC’s 45th Annual Membership Meeting on Wednesday, June 28 will be the first opportunity for members to pick up their capital credit checks.
As a cooperative, margins not needed to maintain and operate the co-op are allocated back to the members.
Once again, GVTC had a year during which it grew by leaps and bounds.
Residential lines increased by IO percent and business lines increased by 29 percent.
GVTC now serves over 35,000 access lines and is still the largest
telephone cooperative in Texas.
In 1999 GVTC broadened its service offering and truly became “the one stop shop for all your communications needs.”
In March of 1999 Guadalupe Valley Long Distance (GVLD) introduced a low cost alternative to the big long-distance companies.
Now one can get friendly, personal customer service and one bill for both local and long distance.
Calling cards and great rates on international calling are also available.
GVTC finished the year by rolling out ISDN service.
ISDN offers the functionality of two telephone lines while also
allowing them to be combined to achieve a 128 kbps Internet session.
A dedicated 128 kbps Internet solution called DataLink 128 also was made available. .
GVTC.com Internet service grew by more than 30 percent.
More businesses than ever realize that GVTC’s commercial web hosting services can help their business grow.
Y2K passed without a hitch. It was a busy year, but the employees of GVTC will not rest for a moment.
The new millennium brings many opportunities.
The year 2000 will find GVTC Central Office engineers designing and installing a high speed
date network that will deliver Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) services.
Field engineers, construction, installation and the commercial departments will have their hands full accommodating a slew of new members moving into the numerous developments in the area.
There has never been a more exciting time in GVTC history.
GVTC’s 45th Annual Membership Meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the New Braunfels Civic Center with registration and the distribution of capital credits beginning at 5 p.m.
The chairman of the board, Charles Knibbe, will report on the financial condition of GVTC
for the year ending Dec. 31, 1999.
Six directors will be elected to the board.
GVTC expects a big turnout, so members are encouraged to arrive early.
In past years as many as 1,100 members have attended.
Member involvement in the cooperative is encouraged and there is no better way than to attend annual meetings.
Capital credit checks that are not picked up at the annual meeting will be mailed out the first week in July.
Because there are almost 40,000 checks to distribute, they cannot be picked up from any of GVTC’s business offices.
Pet of the Week
My name is Rex and you can tell from my smile I’m a happy dog. But I’d be happier if I had a home. I prefer not to be with other animals (I don’t like the competition!), so it’d be best if I were an only pet. I have been known to jump short fences, so it would be best to have a high-fenced yard. I am a 6-month-old Rottweiler mix puppy. Like all puppies, all I need is love, attention and some guidance. Keep me smiling and come visit me at the Canyon Lake Animal Shelter at 5530 FM 2673 Monday through Saturday.
