NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER - "FCC REFORM"
SAVE RURAL BROADBAND – A CALL TO ACTION!
Rural telephone companies, like InterBel, are currently facing a change of rules in USF (Universal Service Funds) that would significantly change our ability to build-out and offer advanced services and faster broadband speeds. A “call to action” is being requested of all “rural customers” around the country to let your voice be heard in Washington, D.C.. This is a nationwide effort and a website has been created to provide more detailed information and to let your voices be heard. Please see the links below and thank you for any support you can provide. If you have a chance, please listen to the 6 minute video clip (below) of Senator Dorgan which summarizes the issues very well.
If you would like to support the SAVE RURAL BROADBAND movement please CLICK HERE then click the "SEND THE LETTER" and fill out the easy to use from. You may even customize your letter. This letter will go to President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Montana Senator Max Baucus and Montana Senator Jon Tester. We urge you to take the time to send these government officials your voice on this matter. If you would like to contact Congressman Denny Rehberg on this matter please CLICK HERE to voice your support on the SAVE RURAL BROADBAND issue.
