Hargray was founded in nearby Hardeeville under the name Harcan Telephone. Throughout the following decades, Hargray expanded in Bluffton and eventually onto Hilton Head Island. By the 1980s, Hargray began offering cable television service to customers in the region in addition to telephone service. In 2007, Hargray was acquired by Quadrangle Capital Partners. Several years later, in 2010, Quadrangle unsuccessfully attempted to sell Hargray.
Hargray established Data Publishing in 1986. It is responsible for publishing all of the Hargray Telephone Directories. The company continued to expand and publish directories for other companies including Horry Telephone Cooperative and Windstream, among others. Under Quadrangles ownership of Hargray, the company was ultimately sold to Horry Telephone Cooperative. The deal was completed in September 2012.
