You Live in a Smart Rural Community!

Download Images to ViewMoapa Valley has been recognized as a Smart Rural Community. What does this mean? So glad you asked.

A Smart Rural Community (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. The certification is awarded by NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association.

In order to receive recognition as a SRC provider, MVT was required to affirm that it offers 100 Mbps broadband to at least 50% of its service area and that it is committed to program principles of collaboration and innovation. MVT is pleased to announce they not only meet these requirements but exceed them. At least 64% of serviceable locations can get fiber internet with up to 1 Gig speed. Bernie Conrique, the President of the Moapa Valley Chamber of Commerce salutes Moapa Valley and MVT for its hard work to meet these standards, which enables residents to fully participate in today’s connected society. "Because of access to high-speed internet, Moapa Valley provides its residents with educational and economic opportunities on par with those in the most connected regions of America."

NTCA Chief Executive Officer Shirley Bloomfield also recognized MVT 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 MVT and Moapa Valley for their commitment to enabling cutting-edge technologies that drive innovation and promote economic development in their region and nationwide."
