We are excited to reveal our refreshed and updated logo!

Founded in 1950, Dickey Rural Telephone Cooperative has grown from providing high-quality telephone service to the residents of southeast North Dakota to serving its exchanges with phone, television, IT solutions, and broadband Internet, surpassing Internet speeds available up to 10 Gig.


“As the company continues to grow, it was important for the cooperative’s logo to represent both its founding principles and the future vision of the brand. When DRN began over 72 years ago, our commitment was to offer the best services available to connect our members. Today we remain dedicated to that goal of connecting our members to the world via our fiber network and making a difference in the communities we serve,” said DRN General Manager/CEO Kent Schimke.


As technology continues to advance, DRN makes upgrades and improvements to its existing network and expanded beyond the traditional services and service territory with business IT through ReadiTech and ReadiTech IT Solutions; broadband engineering throughReadiTech Engineering and fiber-optic broadband services in Mapleton, Casselton, and Horace through ReadiTech Fiber, all subsidiaries of DRN.


According to DRN Marketing Manager Janell Hauck, “Due to the recent expansion of the subsidiary, our management team, Board of Directors, and marketing team were looking to update the DRN logo to reflect unity with our subsidiary, ReadiTech, and its various divisions.  Refreshing the DRN logo with an updated font and new colors reflects this progress while honoring our past.” The logo maintains the letters, DRN, refreshed in blue with the familiar swoosh, now in green.


“While we have evolved and improved our services, we are still committed to serving our members the best telecommunications services available,” said DRN Board President Ralph Neu.  “DRN’s updated logo shows progress and our commitment to our members in connecting them to the world,” he continued.
