In 1895, local businessmen started the High Point Telephone Exchange in High Point, N.C. In 1899, J.F. Hayden, who started a telephone system in Thomasville, bought the High Point company; both companies grew quickly. In 1905, the High Point company was incorporated as North State Telephone Company. In 1919, Hayden bought the Southern Bell system in High Point, which had operated since 1907. In 1920 North State became the first telephone company in the state to install the automatic-dial system.

In 1929 the company bought the Randleman system, and in 1935 the Thomasville company became part of North State.[2]

In 2004, NorthState began offering DirecTV digital satellite TV.[3]

In 2005, NorthState spent $30 million to begin offering the area's first fiber optic residential service.[4]

In 2007, NorthState's cell phone service changed from Cingular to AT&T.[5] Also in 2007, the company began offering 3G service.[6]

On May 28, 2009, North State announced the brand name Plex, which included both landline and wireless telephone; high-speed Internet capable of 80 Mbits Down and 30Mbits Up; and Plex Advanced TV, a cable TV alternative using Internet Protocol with existing and expanded fiber optic lines capable of delivering HDTV and standard digital TV, as well as video on demand and digital music. The company added fiber optic service in new areas as it began offering the new TV service during summer 2009.[7][8]

Charlotte-based fiber optic service company Segra, part of MTN Infrastructure TopCo Inc., acquired North State in a $240 million deal completed May 19, 2020.[9]
