Montana Telecom head Geoff Feiss lauds state's rural providers during City Club Missoula Forum

January 10, 2017View for printing

Geoff Feiss, general manager of the Montana Telecommunications Association http://telecomassn.org/ , praised the state's rural telecom providers Monday during a presentation before City Club Missoula http://www.cityclubmissoula.com/ . He also panned a local effort to establish an open-access broadband network, calling it "risky business."

Late last year and in an effort to beat back longstanding myths about the state's lack of broadband infrastructure, the Montana Telecommunications Association released a report http://www.broadbandmt.com/ lauding the progress rural carriers have made in extending service into the state's distant reaches.
