Shentel was founded in 1902 as the Farmers Mutual Telephone System (FMTS). Its initial goal was to bring telephone service to rural residents of Shenandoah County, VA. [6] In 1960 the name changed to Shenandoah Telephone Company, then in 1981 to Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel).[4] The company launched cable TV service and a fiber optic network in the 1980s. In 1984 Shentel added mobile and paging services. In 1990 Shentel launched Shenandoah Cellular, the first company in Virginia to offer cellular service to a rural area. Internet service was made available to Shentel customers in 1994. [4]

In the 2000s Shentel began to expand its cable footprint - purchasing cable assets from Rapid Communications in Virginia and West Virginia in 2008[7], and acquiring JetBroadband in southern Virginia and southern West Virginia in 2010.[8] Later in 2010, Shentel purchased two small cable systems from Suddenlink Communications (one in West Virginia, the other in Maryland). [9]

In May 2016, Shentel finished acquiring its competitor Ntelos[10] for 640 million dollars.[11] acquiring 297,500 subscribers. The deal also transferred an additional 291,000 subscribers from Sprint in exchange for Ntelos spectrum[12][13], making Shentel the sixth largest public wireless company in the United States.[4]
