Jeff visits Washington banner

Jeff Leslie Goes to Washington

ITS Fiber's CEO, Jeff Leslie recently attended the NTCA (National Broadband Association) Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. to understand more about what government plans to do to help broadband expansion, especially for rural areas.

The NTCA Legislative Conference gave directors, telco executives and key employees the opportunity to learn about industry and regulatory updates with a focus on management and leadership strategies.

The Conference focused on the latest technology and hosted discussions of hot topics via roundtable sessions. There were many discussions about all the efforts the telecom industry is making to restore funding that was originally promised and what is being done to educate the government on what is needed to finish the job of getting rural broadband to every resident and business located in rural communities.

During his visit, Mr. Leslie met with staff members for Senators Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson to tell the story of ITS Fiber and the negative impact the budget controls have had on us and other rural telcos and to explain how important better, faster broadband is to our customers. While Mr. Leslie was in Washington, he also visited with Congressman Mast and his staff.

All three congressmen agreed to send letters to the chairman of the FCC stating their support for rural broadband, including companies like ITS Fiber, and how they want our expansion funding reinstated, not only now, but in the future. Actions like this from Washington will help us and other rural telecom companies have the assurance to make capital investments to accomplish this task.

Branding Merge

As of May 1, 2018 ITS announced a branding merge under one name: ITS Fiber. ITS Telecom (ITS Telecommunications) and ITS Fiber (the sister company for business services) will now be known under one brand.  Customers will have the same great products and noticeably better customer service they have always experienced - but will see changes to promotional materials, invoices, signage and more.

In fact, you are on our new website that features information for both residential (home) and business customers. We hope you like the new look of the site and the simple format.  Give us your feedback!  Email denisel@itsfiber.com
