About us

Since 1938, we have been committed to providing quality customer care and service to the rural communities of California.




VARCOMM was founded in 1910 when farmers in southern Tulare County California, banded together to create a small telephone network with a single telephone line, and the company incorporated in 1954 to create Ducor Telephone Company.


In 1977, the company then began to expand to service Rancho Tehama and later to Kennedy Meadows, and began providing Internet services in 1993 under the name Varnet, Inc. The company adopted the name VARCOMM (part of VARCOMM Holdings, Inc.) in 2018, along with the introduction of broadband and enhanced services.


In 2021, with Eric Votaw and Jenifer Vellucci at the helm, VARCOMM became the first Mexican-American and female-owned incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC) in California’s history.


Committed to our community, committed to quality, committed to service, and committed to your hometown network. Our mission is you!



Eric N. Votaw – CEO and Chairman of the Board
Miguel Madrigal – Director of Broadband Operations
