Rural telecommunications is our business.
We are the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association. Since 1954, the voice of small, rural telecommunications carriers connecting the heartland of America to the world.
We are community-based, locally owned companies, dedicated to providing vital telecommunications services—ensuring the economic future of rural America.
We are more than 570 member companies that provide local phone, wireless, Internet, cable, satellite and long-distance service to some of the most remote, sparsely populated areas of the nation. Rural telecommunications is our business. Our companies are the leaders in providing the best telecommunications services to small town America.
