A New Year, a New Phase

A new year is upon us and with it comes significant potential changes for the rural broadband industry.  Last year was one for the history books as we saw the updating of High Cost and Low Income USF programs, implementation of Open Internet rules and Customer Privacy Protections in the broadband space, not to mention plans for 5G mobile wireless technologies and a nation-wide push towards municipal broadband projects.  Historically, the year following any major reform in federal programs is filled with further evaluation and resolutions as unforeseen implementation issues are ironed out.  A new US President, with his own policy goals and aspirations, will add to this dynamic, marking 2017 as a new phase for our industry.

For 35 years, TCA has helped rural providers navigate through changing times such as this and we stand ready to carry on our mission of providing personalized, quality service to your company and partnering with you to ensure your long term success.

Cyber Security

Today’s world is more interconnected than ever before. Increased connectivity brings increased risk of theft, fraud and abuse. As consumers become more dependent on modern technology, we also become more vulnerable to cyberattacks like company security breaches, spear phishing, and social media fraud.
