Whidbey Telecom adding DISH

Whidbey Telecom announced that it has added DISH to its list of product offerings.

“The way people are getting their video entertainment is changing fast,” said George Henny, co-CEO of Whidbey Telecom. “People are shifting to streaming video options for entertainment at home and on the go. People trust us to provide great service, so it is our responsibility to find the best options for our customers and community.

“We also needed to look for the best, most cost-effective solution for customers who want to stick with regular TV, especially when the major networks are relentlessly forcing massive price increases on us that end up getting passed along to our customers,” said Henny.

“With DISH, customers choose from a variety of TV packages to fit their needs,” said Chris McKnight, CMO of Whidbey Telecom. “The equipment is the most technologically advanced in the industry, but it’s still easy to use.

DISH was recently ranked No. 1 in customer service by J.D. Power, which shows they listen to their customers, he said.

Since 1908, Whidbey Telecom has been a locally owned and operated communications service provider serving South Whidbey Island, Hat Island and Point Roberts.
