Stroll Down Memory Lane
The Gilmer family started in the communications business back in 1898, when 22 year-old Street Gilmer founded Rocksprings Telephone Company. Rocksprings Telephone expanded its service area and is known today as Southwest Texas Telephone Company (STTC). Over 100 years later, great-grandsons of Street Gilmer currently run both STTC and UDP.
UDP has evolved from a long distance rating and data processing division of a telephone company into an extension of its customers’ businesses – providing integrated customer care, billing, provisioning, accounting, business process and database design and management.
