We are excited to share the news that Valley Telephone Cooperative, LLC has been designated as a Smart Rural Community provider!
 



What is a Smart Rural Community?

What does it mean to be a Smart Rural Community? It means that homes, businesses, schools, and public facilities all have access to high-speed broadband and utilize that broadband connection to improve economic, educational, health and social conditions for their communities!

Member providers work tirelessly to keep small-town America connected. Valley collaborates on broadband-enabled projects that provide technology for distance learning, enhance state-of-the-art health care through telemedicine, and encourage entrepreneurship and economic development. These initiatives, among others, help to connect rural communities and keep them advancing towards a future-proof sustainable infrastructure.

• Demonstrate that 50% of its customers subscribe to and use the broadband service.
• Exhibit a stated commitment to collaborate actively with other local leaders, including school districts, health care providers, public safety officials, and businesses who work together to incorporate broadband-enabled applications into those facets of rural life.
