National Broadband Provider goes with MG-TV Live Streaming

 
MITCHELL, S.D. - Nov. 29, 2021 - PRLog -- Innovative Systems has been selected as the streaming middleware provider for RTA's branded live streaming service, gigFAST TV™. Rural Telecommunications of America (RTA) is a national rural ISP focused on delivering gigFAST INTERNET™ to every home within their service areas. The RTA gigFAST NETWORK™ is comprised of 13,000 Fiber Route Miles and 14 Data Centers across the US which currently provide Internet to approximately 200,000 subscribers through their Wholesale, Residential, and Business service offerings.

Innovative Systems was the Right Fit
According to company chairman Don Workman, "Our conversations with Innovative Systems started with a referral from one of our vendor partners. After thoroughly vetting references, we then conducted testing and felt Innovative offered a state-of-the art video platform that we could move forward with." Workman added, "The quality of the solution has exceeded our expectations." While many customers in the urban areas are cutting the cord, RTA believes an OTT streaming service for the rural communities is still a very solid offering.  Many of these areas do not have good coverage for over the air local channels and they require cable or an OTT service for their local channels.  RTA recently surveyed their service areas and found that 74% of their current customers are interested in RTA's gigFAST TV™ streaming offering. Workman says the plan is to launch in all their current markets over the next 30-60 days.

gigFAST TV™ Wholesale
RTA believes many of the rural WISPs are looking to expand their markets, but struggle with the capital or finding the skills required to deploy video. Their wholesale service is turnkey with minimal start-up costs, offering a competitive streaming IPTV platform, with RTA providing the management and support via their gigFASTCLOUD™. Workman says they have already lined up beta customers and expect to begin testing by the end of the year.
