NTCA-GigCert-logoThe NTCA Fall Conference is underway and we’re excited for all of our clients receiving recognition this week. On Monday, NTCA announced the newly Gig-Certified providers, and look who made the list!

In order to become Gig-Certified by NTCA, providers need to demonstrate that gigabit technology is currently available within 95% percent of one or more exchanges, and that the service can be provided without new trenching or stringing new aerial facilities. All applicants needed to confirm this information with a letter from an engineering firm or other independent source involved in the company’s network planning, deployment or operation. Our clients now make up 22% of all the NTCA Gigabit-Certified providers. Here are the most recent additions from the Mapcom family. Congratulations to:

SkyLine Membership Corp., West Jefferson, NC

OmniTel Communications, Nora Springs, IA

Toledo Tel, Toledo, WA

KanOkla Networks, Caldwell, KS

Norvado, Cable, WI

The NTCA Gig-Certification is an inclusive initiative meant to bolster the nation’s confidence in rural telecommunications providers. Certified gigabit-capable telcos are encouraged to brand themselves with the Gig-Certified NTCA logo and are featured in NTCA media, conferences and events. Interested in learning more?
