Landline Phones are important!
We at BIT thought this video was very appropriate for our business. Thank you Bay Alarm Medical for supporting the phone companies that offer landline phones! Since October is Cooperative month, we celebrate the fact that BIT was created by local citizens who needed communication tools, such as the telephone, in order to improve the quality of their lives. We thank you, and we thank our members for the support you have given the cooperative since its formation!
Happy Cooperative Month!

“Thank you so much for the services you provide. It is so nice to be able to see what is happening on the internet, especially when I use Satellite TV and we all know any bad weather causes blackouts. In and out, in and out. So again, thank you for the provisions you have to keep us all happy.”
Sincerely, Barbara Moore
