Get connected

As a socially and environmentally responsible organisation, we are also a membership organisation and a telecoms consumer co-operative. We can offer you a range of solutions for your telecoms needs with fair and transparent prices and excellent personal customer service.

For almost 20 years, The Phone Co-op has been working with rural communities to get them connected. Rural communities are by nature more isolated requiring broadband, WiFi access or mobile signal for essential communications.

We recognise that community buildings in rural areas have an important role to play whether the traditional village hall, the Church, community pub or shop.  Providing broadband for local users is vital for a thriving community.  

About our partnership

Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) is the national voice for the 38 rural community councils who make up the country’s largest rural network.

The Phone Co-op have partnered with ACRE to help village halls and rural community buildings to get connected with broadband and public WiFi access.

Our Enterprise Fund is also available for any community organisation signing up to a 24 month contract.
