Ah, bills. Can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without them. From getting recycled with junk mail, to forgetting to put a stamp on the return envelope, the paper bill process is as tedious as ever. But online billing just gets easier and easier!

Bloomer Telephone Company uses SmartHub, an extremely secure, easy-to-use online bill pay system. In just a few easy steps, you can go to the Bloomer website and pay your bill, or you can set up recurring payments and skip setting your monthly reminder!
