We want to please you. Every member of the Arkansas telephone team wants to give you the best service possible. How well are wo succeeding? What have we done to meet the demands for service, and to meet demands for better grades of service? Here arc some of the things which have been accomplished during 1953: We carried out a $1014 million construction program With this hew construction money, we— L Placed 3,000 poles and 8,800 miles of wire in rural areas. 2. Changed four towns from crank-type telephones to dial operation. S. Converted Fayetteville to dial service. We also added an additional central office in Little Rock. (Windsor-5 office). 4. Established new telephone exchange at Black Fish Lake (near West Memphis), Ferndale and Pinnacle (west of Little Rock), and at Jones Mill. 5. These and other improvements required nine new buildings plus a major addition to the telephone building 8t 7th and Louisiana in Little Rock. 6. Added major equipment in 16 central of- fices to handle more calls and to handle them better. 7. Placed storm resistant telephone cables containing 55,000 circuit miles of wire. These included coaxial cable from Little Rock to Memphis, which provides for hundreds of long distance circuits as well as a connection with national television network. We delivered more service and it was better service We connected 40,000 telephones and disconnected 34,000 for a net gain of 6,000. This brought many more Arkansas families and businesses within reach of your telephone. We gave service to 400 families whose application had been delayed until we could install poles, or central office equipment. Jobs are planned in 1954 for others waiting for service. In 1953 your long distance call was completed on the average in one minute and 42 seconds—an improvement of IS seconds. We kept all telephone equipment operating more efficiently so that today telephones in Arkansas are reported "out of order" on the average of only once in 26 months. We tried to make the telephone company a good place to work We provided good jobs for 3,800 Arkansans throughout the year. Their pay checks totalled $13 million, and nearly all of that sum was spent in the many Arkansas towns we serve. Wo also paid our share of taxes— 1, $1J? million in state and local taxes; 3, $3 million ji Federal taxes. Approximately % of every dollar we took in went for wages and tiaes. Our investment in the state of Arkansas grew substantially Our total investment in telephone facilities for Arkansas increased $7 million last year alone. Altogether, we have built $65 million worth of buildings, lines, and equipment since 1946 to keep up with your needs for telephone service. In 1946, our investment per telephone was $199. Last year our investment increased to $322 per telephone. This year we hope to do an even better job for you We have plans to change more communities to dial operation in 1954. We will also start construction of buildings for conversion in other towns which will be completed in 1955 and 1956. We will greatly expand operator long distance dialing this year. Furthermore, we plan service extensions of telephone networks. These are just a few of the many ways we intend to improve and expand your service again this year. We are proceeding with a $28 million construction program, to extend over the next three years. We have faith that the people of Arkansas, through their regulatory power intend to allow earnings which justify the decision to go forward with this program. We want to help Arkansas grow and to give Arkansas telephone service equal to the world's best. That's our goal. Your suggestions on how we can achieve it will always be appreciated.
