Over the past year I’ve spent a lot of time talking to key new players in deploying broadband to rural America: electric cooperatives.

At Alianza, we say: “Got Fiber? You need VoIP!” We say this because many new ISPs are entering the market without a background in voice services, and there’s great opportunity for them to grow revenue, accelerate ROI and deliver a better customer experience with a phone service portfolio.
For over a decade, Broadband Communities Magazine has recognized organizations that lead the way in "building a fiber-connected world" in its Top 100 Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) list. Alianza is one of those companies and we are honored as to be named one of the FTTH leaders and innovators for 2017 for our Cloud Voice Platform that powers VoIP phone services for broadband ISPs.
Last week at the UTC Telecom and Technology annual show Alianza was recognized with the UTC Impact Award for services.
