Since 1938, we have been committed to providing quality customer care and service to the rural communities of California.


Our Story

Varcomm can trace its history to 1910 when farmers in southern Tulare County California, banded together to create a small telephone network with a single telephone line. In 1938 the Roome family purchased the facilities in Ducor, California.

In 1954, Virgil A. Roome incorporated the company and served the community of Ducor for the following 59 years until his death in 2013. In 1977, Ducor began service to the community of Rancho Tehama Reserve in northern California. Around 1993 began Varnet, Inc. to provide internet service to the communities that Ducor Telephone Company services. In 1995 Ducor began service to the community of Kennedy Meadows, high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains along that Pacific Crest Trail.

2018 saw the transformation of the company to the new name of Varcomm (Virgil A. Roome) and the introduction of broadband products and enhanced services and is part of Varcomm Holdings, Inc. family of companies.
