The Southern New England Telephone Company (commonly referred to as SNET by its customers) started operations on January 27, 1878 as the District Telephone Company of New Haven. Since its inception, SNET has held a monopoly on most of the telephone services in the state of Connecticut; the only exception is in a small part of the state near the New York state border where Verizon Communications provides telephone services (formerly served by the Bell Operating Company New York Telephone, which became a part of NYNEX, which was absorbed into Bell Atlantic, now Verizon).

Brand History

The Southern New England Telephone Co.
In 1921, SNET was a minority holding of AT&T, but it still used the Bell branding and was recognized as a part of AT&T. This is just one of the many Bell logos used by AT&T until 1983. This version of the logo was used up to 1939.
Southern New England Telephone
In 1984, AT&T broke up its ownership of its local operating companies, whom were grouped into 7 Regional Bell Operating Companies; AT&T also had to withdraw its holdings in SNET and Cincinnati Bell. Because the two companies were small in size and not wholly owned, Cincinnati Bell, Inc. and Southern New England Telephone became fully independent companies. SNET changed its official corporate name to Southern New England Telecommunications, Inc.
Southern New England Telecommunications
The Telecommuncations Act of 1996 is signed. SBC Communications, now AT&T, Inc., purchased SNET in 1998.
SBC SNET
In 2001, SBC begins to rebrand all of its Bells to reflect their being a part of a national telecommuncations provider. SBC eventually drops the names of all of its Bells in 2002, and adds the title "d/b/a SBC (name of state or region)" to the official names of its companies.
