Broadband Solutions

Our Broadband Solutions initiative helps members lower broadband access costs, improve capacity, redundancy and quality along with other key elements associated with broadband services. We also develop strategic partnerships with value-added service providers to give our members access to best-in-class consumer products such as premium Wi-Fi.

NCTC Broadband Focus

 We're setting the stage for the broadband-related services NCTC will look to provide in the near future.

Our Roadmap

Broadband Transport - NCTC understands that broadband transport is a key component in overall cost of any member's broadband solution. Following the Access Program launch, NCTC will start to drive transport initiatives with members and carriers.

  • National RFP: NCTC will issue an RFP to the national and regional providers of transport, that many of our members already utilize. This effort will be driven in part by our looking at the survey data that we have requested above. As we collect this data, we will be able to better target the top priorities that we should go work with.
  • Member-supported transport: Data collected in the survey will be the start of our pulling members and their networks together, with the intent of helping our membership to provide transport services to each other.

Broadband peering and caching solutions  - Key components of the program that will be launched following the Access Program include NCTC-led efforts for enhanced peering and caching solutions.
