Dates of existence
The Lampman Rural Telephone Company was incorporated in 1911 to provide telephone service in the Lampman area of Saskatchewan. It was served by the Lampman Local Exchange Board beginning in 1914, along with four other small rural telephone companies: Lampman North, Landau, Wilberforce-Lampman and Grimes (later Cullen), all with representation on the Exchange board. In 1934 Cullen, Lampman North, Landau and Wilberforce-Lampman rural telephone companies amalgamated with Lampman Rural Telephone Company. In the following years other small telephone companies were also absorbed including Steelman (1946), Lampman Urban (1947?) and Browning (1948?).
In 1964, Saskatchewan Government Telephones (SaskTel), acquired control of the town system in Lampman. SaskTel put up a new building, and installed an automatic exchange that included a new dial system. On January 13, 1977, SaskTel, as part of an effort to centralize all telephone operations in the province, assumed complete control of rural lines handled by the Lampman Rural Telephone Co. The Lampman Rural Telephone Co. held its last board meeting on March 3, 1977.
