Congratulations go out to Telispire, NRTC’s mobile phone company subsidiary, for winning a 2016 Visionary Spotlight Award for its service to rural and underserved markets. The Visionary Spotlight Awards each year honor communications products in a wide range of categories. ChannelVision Magazine will feature Telispire and the other award winners in its March/April issue.
“Telispire is honored to be selected as an award winner among some of the industry's leaders in communications and technology,” Telispire CEO Curtis Knobloch said following the awards announcement.
Telispire is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). It provides rural telcos the opportunity to sell access to the latest 4G LTE mobile phone services without having to finance costly wireless infrastructure construction. In addition, Telispire provides back office support, marketing assistance and other tools to help its rural members achieve success.
“Customers WANT to do business with companies in their local communities, but up until the deployment of 4G LTE, they were unwilling to move to local telecom provider’s 3G network. Telispire has enabled these local telecom companies to focus on the key differentiators that push them over the top in rural markets – supporting the local economy and receiving discounts on bundled services,” Telispire said in its application to the Visionary Spotlight competition.
