CTC was the incumbent local exchange carrier in Cabarrus, Stanly, and Rowan counties, North Carolina. It served over 120,000 access lines in this area. CTC also provided competitive local exchange carrier services to business and residential customers located throughout North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina. During the late 1990s and early 2000s, CTC employed over 600 individuals.
