Our History

Sunrise Communications is a Cable TV & High-Speed Internet provider that began operations in 2007.   Sunrise purchased, rebuilt and upgraded the defunct cable system that previously serviced six of the eight areas Sunrise will eventually operate in. Those six areas are: Cedarville/Hessel, Drummond Island, Onaway, Hillman, Mullet Lake and Atlanta. 

In May 2007 Sunrise purchased the systems that operate in Pickford and Posen. In 2012 Sunrise purchased the Wolverine cable system.


Sunrise's objective has been to rebuild and upgrade these system and provide Sunrise subscribers the benefits of real broadband High-Speed Internet, digital VoIP telephone, and quality Cable TV.

Our crews have been working diligently for the past 5 years to update and improve the existing equipment and test the integrity of the system plant in order to be able to provide high quality services to our subscribers.
