Northeast Nebraska Telephone Company (NNTC) recognized the Village of Stuart, NE in Holt County as a Smart Rural Community (SRC) at the Stuart Park on Tuesday, June 14th.
The designation comes from the Rural Broadband Association (NTCA) in conjunction with NNTC. This recognition is presented to those Broadband enabled communities who see an importance of Broadband Internet as a way to connect and grow through the capabilities of expanded online education, remote work, telehealth, ag technology, economic development, government services, safety and security. Stuart, NE is a Gig-Certified capable community enabling technology for all those who live and work there.
The Smart Rural Community designation is an opportunity for rural communities to position themselves among a national network of communities powered by innovative rural broadband providers for growth. Gig-capable fiber communities have the power to build a brighter future for small-town America.
At a time in Nebraska and the United States when government is investing millions to help close the “Digital Divide”, Stuart, NE is already enjoying the same great fiber enabled speeds as those in urban areas like Lincoln and Omaha.
The presentation to Stuart by NNTC was part of a company hosted open house on June 14th. All NNTC communities will receive this designation at a later date.
Welcome to the discussion.
