Rural Telecommunications of America, Inc. (RTA) announced today it had completed its acquisition of SCT BROADBAND, LLC

SCT Broadband is a rural Wireless and Fiber Internet Service Provider for residential, business, and government customers between Austin and Houston, TX.

With this acquisition, RTA continues its expansion across rural America, as part of RTA's strategy to narrow the "Digital Divide" between rural and urban America. RTA brings significant value to these rural areas by providing affordable modern gigFAST™ internet services and VoIP and Internet of Things (IoT).  In the near future RTA will be providing IPTV.

Erich Kaiser, President of SCT Broadband commented "Joining RTA's family is truly exciting but more importantly, we will be rapidly expanding SCT's service area and internet services."

Today our lives depend on the internet for everything from entertainment and E-Learning, to Telehealth and Telemedicine.  With many rural communities competing for people who are moving away from urban areas, the pressure to provide the same level of broadband services they experienced in cities is on the rise.

Jim Edwards, CEO added "This provides RTA a solid foundation between Austin and Houston to support these growing rural areas with affordable gigFAST™ broadband."
