HuronTel Receives International Recognition with Smart Rural Community Award.

HuronTel is the 1st company outside of the United States to be honored with the Smart Rural Community Showcase Award
by NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association (NTCA). NTCA cited HuronTel’s advanced communications services and collaboration with
local leaders in the communities it serves as some of the keys to its success.

At a gathering of more than 1,000 leaders of rural telecommunications providers hosted by NTCA, HuronTel was honored with the award for deploying advanced technologies and leveraging those technologies to enable innovation in the areas of economic development and commerce, education, enhanced health care, government services, security and energy use.

HuronTel’s efforts were judged against those of dozens of other companies by a panel of experts from the fields of telecommunications,
software and technology services, education, health care and economic development. “Smart Rural Community Showcase Award recipients
are prime examples of the power of a broadband connection and a steadfast commitment to growth and prosperity,” said NTCA Chief Executive Officer, Shirley Bloomfield.

The NTCA Smart Rural Community initiative recognizes and celebrates the efforts of rural telecommunications providers and their communities
to deliver technologies that make rural communities vibrant places in which to live and do business. The goal of the initiative is to foster the development of smart communities by recognizing trailblazers and providing resources to assist broadband providers and connected industries.

“We are pleased and excited to accept this award,” said Glenn Grubb, HuronTel General Manager, who received the award on behalf of HuronTel. “We have worked hard with our local leaders to ensure that our subscribers have access to advanced communications and the many benefits those services enable.

We look forward to building on our success for many years to come.” HuronTel provides local telephone service to over 8,000 homes
and business in Huron and Bruce counties.

HuronTel provides various telecommunications services including Cellular, Digital TV, Telephone and Broadband Internet.
