In January 2017, Yukon-Waltz Telephone Company was renamed LHTC Broadband. Yukon-Waltz Telephone Company (YWTC) was founded in 1911 by John Cook, who also owned Yukon Lumber Company. The name Yukon-Waltz came from the town name, Yukon, and the nearby Waltz Feed Mill. During the 1930s, John Rocker had a telephone and, like most, it was connected to a party line, which meant that when the phone rang, the call may or may not have been for the Rocker household. Rocker decided to ask for a private telephone line and was told that if he wanted a private line he had to hang the line himself, and so he did. Rocker began doing telephone installations and repairs for the company. By 1949, the Rocker family had taken control of YWTC.
The company remained family owned until 2008, when YWTC was acquired by Laurel Highland Total Communications (LHTC), Inc, based in Stahlstown, PA. LHTC also owns Laurel Highland Telephone Company and several affiliated companies.
