Our History

NorthState was initially established as High Point Telephone Exchange by local businessmen in 1895. In 1899, J.F. Hayden, an inventor and visionary who had earlier pioneered the first telephone system in neighboring Thomasville, purchased the High Point company and rapidly began expanding both systems.

In 1905, Hayden incorporated the High Point-based company and changed the name to North State Telephone Company. In 1919, Hayden purchased High Point’s competing Southern Bell system, which had been operating since 1907. In 1920, NorthState earned broad recognition when it became the first telephone company in the state to install the automatic-dial system.

In 1929, the company purchased the Randleman telephone system. The company continued its pattern of innovation and growth when the Thomasville company was merged into NorthState in 1935.

In 2020, NorthState was acquired by Segra. It continues to build upon a full range of fiber-based personal, home and small business products and services, including broadband Internet, voice services, digital television services, and more. NorthState, a Segra company, serves a broad area of the Piedmont Triad Region of North Carolina, including the communities of High Point, Thomasville, Archdale, Randleman, Jamestown, Trinity, Greensboro and Kernersville.
