Who We Are: The Small Company Coalition (SCC) is an alliance of rural telecommunications companies formed to educate and empower small rural ILEC communications providers on methods to influence and eliminate harmful regulations and legislation. We endeavor to influence and revise regulations and legislation that would impede our ability to provide advanced telecommunications service to our communities. The SCC, which is an initiative led by small company executives, strives to ensure that the voice of small companies is heard by those who have a genuine interest in protecting and enhancing the communication service needs of rural Americans.

We Have The Solution: In coordination with industry experts, Alexicon Telecommunications Consulting, the SCC has developed a model which addresses and eliminates the unintended consequences of the FCC's USF/ICC Transformation Order.

The SCC/Alexicon model incents carriers to invest in broadband deployment to currently unserved and underserved Americans.

Rural America Is Calling You To Be a Voice for Rural Broadband

The future of rural America lies in Broadband. Help us carry this message to the FCC.

National Petition of Advocates

petition_change Our petition earned 1,334 signatures of rural broadband advocates whose voices were taken by the SCC directly to Congress.
Hear what signers have to say:

"I feel the order will adversely affect my parents' access to broadband and telephone. They live in a remote mountainous area that depends on USF to assure communications. There is no cellular service available because of sparse population and terrain. Satellite internet has a terribly slow uplink and has lots of latency even in the downlink. My parents' telephone and DSL service is reliable, affordable, and works much better than satellite. Affordability and reliability are critical because my parents are on a fixed income and my mother is disabled in a wheelchair and depends on her landline for emergency services."


"It is time to put a stop to big companies doing whatever they wish at the expense and freedom of people in Rural America . Let's keep our small companies healthy."


"This order is terrible for rural economies and is a complete reversal of public policy towards rural America of the past 80 years."
