Star Telephone Company, Inc. is known now as Star Communications, a name updated in 2002 to keep up with the ever- changing telecommunications industry. Star is not only your local telephone service provider, but also your internet service provider. So, in keeping with our ever-improving service to you – this name demonstrates our desire to be not only your telephone provider, but also your provider for all of your communications needs.
Today, Star meets the communications needs for customers within a 700 square mile area that extends over six parishes. Star’s facilities serve these customers with five telephone exchanges (Maringouin, Livonia, Rosedale, Innis, & Cheneyville). The Maringouin, Livonia, Rosedale, and Cheneyville exchanges’ switches are served by fiber optic cable into the switch which provides the high bandwidth required by state of the art telecommunication applications today such as video conferencing, data transmission, and internet. Star provides and maintains services in these exchanges through the work of employees, each with many years of telecommunications experience, and each dedicated to providing quality services to meet the communications needs of the customers.
Although Direct Communications is the parent company, our name continues to be “Star Communications” a well-recognized brand that we intend to improve continually upon through the innovations of the previous ownership, along with the installation of a future proof fiber optic network. Thus, Star Communications continues to be a strong, stable communications organization with over 65years’ experience, committed to providing our customers with state of the art solutions to meet all of their communications needs.
