ERTA Mission

Since March 9, 1987 Eastern Rural Telecom Association (ERTA) has served the rural, mostly family owned telecommunications companies operating in the Eastern United States. 13541613_sERTA has always been small and nimble and able to advocate quickly for members on federal issues that have an impact on the deployment of broadband and advanced telecommunications services to customers in rural America at affordable rates.

ERTA Board of Directors met on March 6, 2019 and following considerable discussion of declining members and participation, the Board voted to dissolve the association – following one last regulatory filing –  at the FCC to file comments on USF Reform.
