Alianza Enables Rural Broadband Electric Cooperatives to Win with Cloud Communications

VoIP is great, it’s growing, and it’s essential to rural broadband that electric cooperatives deploying to connect their communities. Almost every electric cooperative delivers cloud communications as part of its broadband portfolio as it makes good business sense (see Top 3 Reasons to Add VoIP to FTTH).

Today, we are announcing four cooperatives have joined the Alianza family and we’re excited to help them win more customers, deliver an awesome customer experience, and boost the ROI for their rural broadband projects. Their residential and commercial members benefit from having access to blazing-fast broadband and modern, convenient phone solutions that are lower cost than legacy telephone products.

Rural Broadband

Alianza now serves more than 30 electric cooperatives, including some of the largest REC ISPs ( in the 10K+ broadband customer club). We are doing this in conjunction with our broadband ecosystem including consultants and vendors Calix, GLDS, and NISC.

Greenfield VoIP Launch

MidSouth Fiber Internet, the ISP of MidSouth Electric Cooperative in Texas is in the process of launching broadband and VoIP together as they build out to their members

In addition, two cooperatives are adding phone services to the broadband portfolio launched years ago. Now they are adding VoIP to win more customers and more completely serve their communities with compelling cloud communication offerings.

  • Red Bolt Broadband, the ISP of Continental Divide Electric Cooperative in New Mexico
  •, the ISP of Jackson Electric Cooperative in Texas that is deploying both wireless and fiber broadband

Migrating from Hosted Softswitch White Label Solutions

We also help RECs that offer already voice and want a solution that is easier, better quality, and more agile (let’s say less foggy and true cloud) from a vendor dedicated to service provider success.

BEC Fiber, the ISP of Bandera Electric Cooperative in Texas, is the latest cooperative to make that upgrade (see Midwest Energy & Communications Upgrades Broadband Phone With Alianza as another example) as the cooperative deploys 100% fiber broadband to its members.

We’re excited to help these service providers win more customers with an awesome customer experience,
