National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative
National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative (NRTC) represents the advanced telecommunications and information technology interests of 1,500 rural utilities and affiliates in 48 states. NRTC helps rural electric and telephone utilities strengthen their businesses with solutions uniquely suited to the needs of rural consumers.
NRTC was founded in 1986 by electric cooperatives, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), and the National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation (CFC). NRTC provides products and services developed specifically to meet the needs of rural utilities and their customers; services such as high-speed Internet access via satellite, fiber-based broadband Internet access and support, integrated smart grid technologies and energy efficiency solutions, wireless technologies, long-distance programs, mobile phone service, IP backbone services, and programming distribution rights for video providers.
NRTC is driven by their members’ commitment to provide communities with innovative telecommunications solutions and a vision for continued viability. NRTC helps ensure success by aggregating their individual buying power, negotiating national contracts, and supporting business solutions that consistently expand their service offerings.
NRTC remains focused on bringing advanced telecommunications solutions to rural America.
Using the combined NRTC and NeoNova platforms, NeoNova expects to invest in an expanded set of residential, commercial, and enterprise services for rural and regional broadband providers, technology partners, and small businesses for its customers now and in the future.
