Smart Rural Community

Serving Smart Rural Communities

Connecting Businesses and Communities across North Dakota

We invite you to share in our excitement and optimism of Dakota Central’s national recognition of a Smart Rural Community!

Broadband Technology

Broadband technology overcomes distance, and business is no longer tied to a geographic location.

Rural Advantage

Rural advantage allows people to live, work and play in the rural places we all know and appreciate.

Use the SRC logo in your business and community

Recognition as a Smart Rural Community allows us to share the SRC brand and logo with our communities. Dakota Central encourages local governments, Chambers of Commerce, Economic Development entities and interested businesses to contact us about use and placement on your websites and/or marketing materials.

The SRC Showcase Award

The Smart Rural Community® (SRC) Showcase Award is an annual award presented to NTCA members to recognize their extraordinary achievements in promoting rural broadband networks and their broadband-enabled applications in rural communities. Telecommunications companies are awarded based on their ability to demonstrate the use of these technologies through innovative economic development, education, health care, government services, safety and security, and more efficient energy distribution and use.
