Changes made at Blue Valley Tele-Communications

Recent changes have been made at Blue Valley Telecommunications in a letter sent out to it’s customers late last week.  The BVTC Board of Directors said that at a special board meeting on July 31, they determined that the best interests of the company would be served with a change in administration.  At that time, the board voted to terminate the General Manager of BVTC, without cause, effective August 31st.  There have also been many questions concerning BVTC’s financial state with the effects of the FCC’s introduction of the National Broadband Plan.  Many of the FCC’s changes went into effect July 1st.  The Universal Service Fund is collected from all telephone subscribers in the U.S.A. and then allocated to rural communication providers to help with the expenses of the high cost of providing communication service to the rural areas.  The cuts to the rural companies are severe and have the potential to significantly impact the future of rural broadband infrastructure nationwide.  BVTC has been preparing for the reductions by working hard to absorb the reductions in the best way possible.  If you have any other questions you may call BVTC at 877-876-1228 or by email at [email protected].
