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
