After careful consideration, and in support of the NTCA Board's desire to pursue more online and mobile communications vehicles, NTCA has decided to eliminate Rural Telecom magazine, with the fall 2019 issue being the last issue. This decision follows much consideration and consultation with members. 

Rural Telecom was an award-winning quarterly magazine for small independent rural service providers to discover and share innovative strategies and insights on technology, business issues, management, marketing and customer service facing rural broadband. Established in 1981 by NTCA, the flagship publication provided unique information and relevant perspectives to service providers leading innovation in rural and small-town America.
