Smart Rural Community Provider

La Grange, TX October 8, 2020

The communities in portions of Fayette, Lavaca and Lee counties in and around La Grange, Schulenburg, Fayetteville and Weimar TX today announced that Colorado Valley Communications was recently named a Smart Rural Community (SRC) provider by NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association. SRC is a national network of communities powered by innovative rural broadband providers that are building a brighter future for small-town America. The program promotes rural broadband and its role in supporting innovative economic development, effective education, efficient energy distribution and use, state-of-the-art health care and other important issues for rural America. 

In order to receive recognition as an SRC provider, Colorado Valley Communications was required to affirm that it offers 25/3 Mbps broadband to at least 50% of its service area; that it has broadband subscription rates of at least 50%; and that it is committed to program principles of collaboration and innovation. As a result of Colorado Valley Communications national recognition, the communities served by Colorado Valley will now be celebrated as Smart Rural Communities in program materials and online at www.smartruralcommunity.com, joining a national network of similarly innovative communities. 

“Congratulations go to Colorado Valley Communications for its hard work to meet these standards, which will help local residents participate in a new world of online digital possibilities. With affordable high-speed internet connections, Colorado Valley Communications will hopefully see the communities it serves benefit from educational and economic opportunities that are competitive with services in any large American city.” – Senator Lois W. Kolkhorst 

NTCA Chief Executive Officer Shirley Bloomfield also recognized Colorado Valley Communications for this achievement, noting, “We are so excited to welcome another Smart Rural Community provider into this growing network of innovative broadband providers delivering the Internet’s fastest speeds in some of the most remote and rural communities of our country. I applaud Colorado Valley Communications for their commitment to enabling cutting-edge technologies that drive innovation and promote economic development in their region and nationwide.”

Unplug Modems During Lightning Storms

PLEASE remember to unplug your high-speed modem and router during lightning storms.  Surge protector can’t always protect your equipment.  If your internet connection runs through the phone line, disconnect the cord from the jack because power surges can also travel through the phone line and fry your equipment.
