LightStream recognized as a 2020 Smart Rural Community Showcase Award Winner by NTCA-The Rural Broadband Association.
What is a Smart Rural Community?
The Smart Rural Community (SRC) is an initiative of NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association. SRC comprises programming relating to and promoting rural broadband networks and their broadband-enabled applications that communities can leverage to foster innovative economic development, commerce, education, health care, government services, public safety and security and more efficient energy distribution and use.
SRC hosts educational events for communications and non-communications professionals, including government policy-makers; administers an award program that invites and reviews applications of rural broadband providers for certification and recognition; and provides resources to rural broadband providers to assist their achievement of goals promoted by SRC. Smart Rural Community also publishes original research and white papers that investigate issues relating to rural broadband deployment, adoption and use.
