Telling the Smart Rural Community Story…

My heart always skips an extra beat when a reporter calls…never quite sure what their motivation or angle might be but I’m always anxious to tell the story of NTCA members and the services they provide to their communities. But I had such a energetic discussion with writer Sue Halpern, writer for The New Yorker (including her phone cutting off in the middle of her discussion from her relatively rural home in Vermont with her Price Cap carrier provider struggling to even provide voice service…never mind broadband services) that I was delighted when she expressed an interest in hitting the road and seeing rural America and rural community-based broadband providers in action!

The New Yorker came out today with their story and I think it really captures the story of innovation and passion for service that I see from NTCA rural broadband providers and wanted to share it since the story she shares from PRTC is more powerful than words I can pull together. How lucky am I to combine my passion with my career?
