Plains Cooperative Telephone Association Named Certified Gig-Capable Provider by NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association

Arlington, Va., (January 8, 2018) – Plains Cooperative Telephone was today recognized by NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association, the premier association representing nearly 900 independent, community-based telecommunications companies that are leading innovation in rural and small-town America, as a Certified Gig-Capable Provider for delivering gigabit broadband speeds and enabling technological innovation in the Idalia, Kirk, Joes, Cope, Eckley, Anton, Seibert and Burlington communities.

As a Certified Gig-Capable Provider, Plains Cooperative Telephone joins a national campaign to build awareness and industry recognition of community-based telecom providers that have built communications networks capable of delivering Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second, which is 100 times faster than those currently available in many U.S. households.

“I applaud Plains Cooperative Telephone for its commitment to delivering the Internet’s fastest speeds—an accomplishment worthy of much praise considering the unique and challenging circumstances small, community-based telecommunications providers operate under every day in serving some of our country’s most rural and remote communities,” said NTCA Chief Executive Officer Shirley Bloomfield. “By building a gigabit-capable network, Plains Cooperative Telephone has not only overcome these challenges, but also shattered conventional benchmarks for broadband speed to enable cutting-edge technologies that drive innovation and promote economic development in their communities, region and nationwide.”
