North Central endorsed as a “Gig-Capable Provider” by NTCA
North Central is once again receiving national recognition for the quality of services the cooperative provides to local residents. NCTC was awarded the designation of being a “Gig-Capable Provider” by NTCA—The Rural Broadband Association. Being “Gig Certified” denotes that speeds of up to 1 Gbps, or 1,000 Mbps, are available from NCTC.
NTCA is an organization representing nearly 900 independent, community-based telecommunications companies and their interests in national government affairs. North Central is one of only 23 cooperatives to be initially “Gig-Certified” by NTCA.
“After being honored as a Smart Rural Community by NTCA in 2014, it’s an incredible accomplishment to be recognized as a ‘Gig-Capable Provider,’” says Nancy White, CEO of North Central. “It’s a testament to the hard work of our employees and their commitment to make our community a better place.”
