EBTC Appeals to Iowa Supreme Court

In what seems to be a never ending battle with the Iowa Utility Board, EBTC has appealed its case to the Iowa Supreme Court. EBTC’s position is that telephone companies deserve to be compensated when they complete calls for wireless carriers who currently pay nothing.

We are currently waiting for the Iowa Supreme Court to decide if they will hear the case or if the case will be directed to a Court of Appeals.

We continue fighting for you to delay/minimize rate increases
Fiber Ring

EBTC has made a verbal commitment with several other east central Iowa telephone companies to create a new sonnet fiber ring.

A sonet fiber ring will significantly increase the bandwidth available to all of the companies involved and will be self-healing in the event of a fiber cut. In other words, your call will not be dropped when a fiber cable is cut.

All the engineering should be completed and equipment ordered by mid August. The ring is scheduled for activation during the 4th quarter. Let’s hope that means October NOT December.

Internet TV (IPTV)

EBTC has signed an agreement with 6 other east central Iowa telephone companies to Beta test a new technology that would use high speed Internet to deliver approx. 150 channels of TV programming to rural homes in our area.

We are excited about the potential of this new technology and the strength we have with our new partners. Our roll-out date was 1st qtr of 2008.
