Looking at the bright side of things, Vickie Colaw, SKSRT
general manager, noted while it can be challenging serving the Quiet Zone, SKSRT
is focusing on the silver lining.
SKSRT currently offers advanced voice and data services with a 100% DSL penetration rate in its service area.
As a strong advocate and participant in economic development projects, SKSRT hopes to provide an infrastructure that will compare with any major city in the United States.
As such, SKSRT has joined with another non-profit organization in the community to encourage economic development.
SKSRT's story is just one more example of how small, independent telephone companies in rural America are moving forward with offering services that cannot be found in many urban areas.
