Nsight / Cellcom

As a premier communications provider, Nsight/Cellcom is proud of its heritage, local ownership and reputation as an active corporate citizen in the community. Nsight has its roots in providing quality local telephone service through Northeast Telephone Company in Pulaski. But the company has stretched far beyond any vision its founders could have imagined, and is now a major telecommunications entity in the Upper Midwest. The list of subsidiary companies under the Nsight name includes Cellcom, Nsight Telservices, Bayland Telephone and St. Paul Tower.

Nsight's growth was spurred by the evolving needs of our customers. Cellcom's inception in 1987 was the result of a growing universal desire for instant communication in any location. Cellcom is a provider of communications services throughout Wisconsin and Michigan, with more than 80 retail and agent locations. The company's renowned network is customized to its rural markets and customers. Cellcom strives to provide the best coverage and extraordinary customer service, and continues to grow its territory to better serve its most important asset: its customers. In Green Bay, Cellcom maintains more cell sites than any other wireless provider and is adding sites every year to further enhance service.

In addition to their current cell sites, Cellcom is committed to the development of green cell sites, powered by solar panels. They also have a cellular phone recycling program with proceeds going back to the community.

Cellcom' commitment to the community is clear. They are supportive of their employee's efforts in service, and as a business, contribute their time and resources to many activities, including the Cellcom/Green Bay Marathon.
