– Now more than ever our rural communities demand and deserve quality access to the internet for their personal health and well-being, education and ability to remotely access their workplace.

At RTA we are taking the following actions to help:

1. We are instituting FREE DRIVE-UP WIFI HOTSPOTS across our service areas.

2. Our engineering teams are working around the clock to support our network operations and ensuring high quality network performance.

3. We are expediting our plans to increase capacity to our rural service areas.

4. Our staff is working extra hours to make sure our subscribers are well connected.

DON WORKMAN, CHAIRMAN “First I want to thank our entire RTA team for the extra hours they are putting in to ensure our service areas are performing at peak capacity for our customers. Second, we challenged the team to come up with a way to make sure anyone in our communities can gain access to the internet while practicing social distancing. I am proud to announce the winner, FREE DRIVE-UP WIFI HOTSPOTS, which we are immediately deploying.”
