CFC Uses Telecom Lending Background To Support Broadband Expansion

CFC Senior Vice President of Loan Operations Robin Reed joins CFC Vice President of Corporate Communications Charles Gloeckner to discuss how CFC’s more than 30 years of rural telecommunications lending experience through the Rural Telephone Finance Cooperative uniquely prepared it to support rural broadband expansion. They share how rural America was left behind the internet revolution and how electric cooperatives can prepare for expanding access to high-speed connectivity. Reed also discusses the benefits of electric cooperatives working with telecommunication cooperatives to deliver broadband services to their communities.
