When visiting Rushmore, it’s not hard to spot the CenturyTel (now CenturyLink) office on 107 North Thompson Ave. The sign has yet to be changed, but the operations and the service you receive from Technician Chad Loosbrock certainly won’t. Contrary to what’s been said lately, CenturyLink has not sold its operations to another provider, nor does it have any plans to.

“We’ve been providing communications service to the folks of Rushmore since 1997,” said CenturyLink Area Operations Manager – Minnesota Mark Tupper,“when we purchased the territory from Qwest. We enjoy the area and the people.”

While the company has grown some, CenturyTel merged with EMBARQ late last summer; it is still very loyal to its rural areas and customers. Tupper has spent the majority of his telecommunications career working in rural Minnesota, most recently out of the company’s Fulda office.

An even more familiar face to local residents would be Loosbrock. Chad has been covering the Rushmore and Brewster territories for ten years now.“I enjoy working in a small town environment,” Chad said.“It’s nice to know names and faces of my customers.” And they trust and rely on Chad, too, who has been called “my go to phone and Internet guy; very helpful, knowledgeable and dependable in all that he does.”

While the sign will be changed in the next few months, there’s no need to worry about anything else changing. If you didn’t know before, you now know who to call.
