NATCO Communications Named Certified Gig-Capable Provider
by NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association
NATCO Communications was recently recognized by NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association, the premier association representing nearly 900 independent, community-based telecommunications companies that are leading innovation in rural and small-town America, as a Certified Gig-Capable Provider for delivering gigabit broadband speeds and enabling technological innovation in the Bull Shoals and Diamond City communities.
As a Certified Gig-Capable Provider, NATCO joins a national campaign to build awareness and industry recognition of community-based telecom providers that have built communications networks capable of delivering Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second, which is 100 times faster than those currently available in many U.S. households. NATCO also received tools to promote itself as a Gig-Capable Provider in these communities and will be recognized in NTCA media, on the NTCA website, and during association conferences and events.
"I applaud NATCO Communications for its commitment to delivering the Internet's fastest speeds—an accomplishment worthy of much praise considering the unique and challenging circumstances small, community-based telecommunications providers operate under every day in serving some of our country's most rural and remote communities," said NTCA Chief Executive Officer Shirley Bloomfield. "By building a gigabit-capable network, NATCO has not only overcome these challenges, but also shattered conventional benchmarks for broadband speed to enable cutting-edge technologies that drive innovation and promote economic development in their communities, region and nationwide."
To achieve certification, telecommunications companies must show that gigabit technology is currently commercially available within 95% of one or more exchanges within its serving territory and that such service can be provided without new trenching or stringing new aerial facilities. This statement must be confirmed by a letter from an engineering firm or other independent source involved in the company's network planning, deployment or operation.
Annual Recycling Project Underway
The new 2016-2017 Ozark Regional Directories will arrive soon! That means it's time for our annual directory recycling project.

The recycling bins will be in place through October 10th.

- Mountain Home: Arvest Bank Main Branch and Arvest Walmart Branch.

Customers are asked to respect the property of the participating businesses and offices and place the old phone directories only in the bins marked with "Recycle" symbol and NATCO company logo. For more information, contact NATCO customer service in Flippin at 453.8800 or toll free 800.775.6682.
Each year, students in kindergarten through eighth grade from Flippin, Yellville-Summit, Bruno-Pyatt, Lead Hill, Omaha, and Bergman are invited to participate in the coloring and essay contests.
A reception will be held for contest winners during November at the NATCO Communications main office in Flippin. Students will enjoy a fun-filled evening of prizes and refreshments.
The annual coloring and essay contest is one of our favorite events held at NATCO. We look forward to receiving outstanding entries again this year.
For more information on the contest, please call 800.775.6682.

NATCO Communications, Inc., (NATCO) is continuing expansion of their Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) network in parts of the city of Flippin. FTTH technology provides unlimited bandwidth and flexibility to deliver advanced telecommunications services at the highest speeds available. For businesses and residents, this means faster access to data and applications stored in the cloud, no delays or buffering of high definition video, and unlimited global business and educational opportunities in rural locations. FTTH is also shown to increase home values and attract businesses which rely on powerful network connections.
The project includes four phases within Flippin. Installation of Phase I included 9 miles of fiber in the Wildcat Shoals area serving around 127 homes and was completed in December 2015. Construction of Phase II is currently underway going east and west along the old Highway 62/412 area and will serve 177 local homes and businesses with 6 miles of fiber. This phase should be complete in December 2016. Phase III will begin the first quarter of 2017 and will involve 17 miles of fiber serving 566 customers. Phase IV is scheduled to start the third quarter of 2017 with an additional 3.5 miles of fiber and 126 customers. All phases should be complete in 2017.
"We are excited to expand these advanced services in our home town. Building this infrastructure in Flippin creates opportunities for the local customers we serve and has the potential to attract new industry and technology-driven businesses to our area," stated Travis Sullivan, Plant Manager with the company. "We are working closely with city officials to locate underground water lines and infrastructure in order to streamline the construction process and keep any disruptions to a minimum."
During planning and construction of the project, NATCO and its contractors notify the Arkansas One Call service to ensure the protection of the public and prevention of damage resulting from accidents involving underground facilities. The service is the state-wide "Call Before You Dig" center which allows excavators of all types to notify multiple utilities of their intent to excavate with a single submission of a locate request.

There are big changes happening at Bull Shoals Dam Site Park. Once closed by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, the park now has new life, filled with visitors and area residents.
Earlier this year, the city of Bull Shoals leased the grounds and began efforts, with the assistance of many volunteers, to clean up the park and make it an inviting place for campers.
As part of the upgrades offered at the park, NATCO provided access and Wi-Fi equipment to deliver Internet service for park guests. The park charges campers a nominal daily fee for Wi-Fi access. However, coupons are available for FREE access from the park's resident host. Contact the park host for eligibility guidelines.
The Bull Shoals Dam Site Park is located just off Hwy. 178 on the west side of the Bull Shoals Dam. For more information on the park or to reserve a camp site please contact Chris or Cindy Cloutier, resident park hosts, at (870) 405-9619.
