Smart Rural Community

TCT Broadband –  “Smart Rural Communities”

Broadband Enabled – Globally Connected – Locally Driven

TCT is proud to say that our service communities are distinguished as Smart Rural Communities from the NTCA, a national association representing nearly 900 independent, community-based telecommunications companies. The Smart Rural Community award is part of the NTCA’s initiative to highlight efforts that make rural communities vibrant places to live and do business.

What does it mean to be a Smart Rural Community? It means that homes, businesses, schools and public facilities all have access to broadband, and the community is using that broadband to improve economic, educational, health and social conditions for their citizens! TCT’s service area communities are all connected to broadband via TCT’s 100% Fiber Optic communications network. Only 1 in 5 households in the U.S. have access to a  Fiber to the Premise connection, so that means that TCT’s service communities are ahead of some of the largest cities in the country, when it comes to broadband access!

If you are looking for a place to relocate your business or to call home, TCT encourages you to consider any one of our wonderful service communities, which all have access to TCT’s award winning, reliable, Fiber Optic broadband network!
