From FRS Glossary
The Foundation for Rural Service (FRS), in cooperation with the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association (NTCA) and its members, promotes, educates, and seeks to advance an understanding of rural telecommunications issues in order to sustain and enhance the quality of life throughout Rural America.
This revised and expanded glossary contains more than 220 of the most frequently used terms in rural telecommunications.
Through its programs and initiatives, the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) calls attention to rural challenges, goals and achievements and educates the public on exactly why providing service in rural America is so unique. FRS is committed to educational achievement in rural communities, recognizing that tomorrow's economic and civic development depends on the involvement and commitment of today's youth.
FRS remains dedicated to community based telecom providers - and the communities they serve - and intends to build on its momentum in helping them keep Rural America Connected.
