Kingston, New York – September 5, 2023 – Archtop Fiber, a provider of multi-gig, 100%-fiber Internet and phone service to residential and business customers across the Northeast, has completed its acquisition of GTel, the fiber-rich, fourth-generation, family-owned voice, video and Internet service provider based in Germantown, New York. Through this acquisition, Archtop Fiber will provide telecommunications services in more than five townships across New York’s southern Columbia County.
“We’re thrilled to have completed this process and officially bring GTel into the Archtop Fiber family. We can now begin to fully integrate our operations and move forward together with the GTel team,” said Jeff DeMond, Chairman and CEO of Archtop Fiber. “We are grateful to the Bohnsack family for entrusting the Archtop team with this tremendous asset and would like to thank Bruce Bohnsack, in particular, for his exceptional work and unwavering dedication to the community and to the industry. He has demonstrated tremendous leadership and dogged determination to drive innovation and growth throughout his career. GTel’s success, of course, would not have been possible without the backing of its loyal, tenacious staff, who have consistently delivered exceptional service to customers on a day-to-day basis while also seeing the big-picture vision to fruition as the company has evolved.”
The GTel acquisition is part of Archtop Fiber’s larger plan to bridge the digital divide in underserved communities in New York’s Hudson Valley and beyond with state-of-the-art, 100%-fiber multi-gig Internet. In January, Archtop announced plans to acquire Hancock Telephone Company, a family-owned telecommunications provider based in Hancock, New York. In May, Archtop revealed it had signed a stock purchase agreement with Momentum Telecom, a leading provider of managed cloud communications services, to acquire New York-based Warwick Valley Telephone Co. Both deals are pending regulatory approvals.
