Rural Telecommunications of America, Inc. (RTA) has teamed up with Zane Smith, NASCAR Truck Series Driver, to launch its (ISP) Wholesale Service at WISPAPALOOZA 2021. RTA’s gigFAST NETWORK is comprised of more than 13,000 fiber route miles across the United States and provides wholesale gigFAST INTERNET, gigFAST CLOUD and will soon offer gigFAST TV and gigFAST VOICE services.
With Smith in the NASCAR Round of 8 playoffs, RTA felt Zane shares its same need for speed. As Smith continues to advance towards a 2021 Championship, RTA recently added more speed to its nationwide fiber network by upgrading to 100 gig links between Houston, Dallas and Austin, Texas.
“We are extremely excited Zane will be taking part in launching RTA’s Wholesale Services at WISPAPALOOZA in Las Vegas,” said Donald Workman, RTA co-founder. “We believe Zane shares many of the competitive qualities which RTA provides its customers and are cheering for him to win the NASCAR Camping World Championship.”
Industry IPTV and ISP veteran Frank Befera has joined RTA to lead RTA’s Wholesale services. Befera, RTA director stated, “I am extremely excited to join RTA on their mission to bring gigFAST INTERNET to rural America. We are looking forward to launching RTA’s ISP Wholesale Group with Zane and meeting many of our customers at WISPAPALOOZA.”
With more than 100 wins to his name, Smith has an accomplished resume in venues from Karts to Legends cars to Super Late Models to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Smith rejoined GMS Racing for the 2021 season in pursuit of his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series title. Through the 15-race regular season, he accumulated 10 top-10s in route to earning a spot in the 10-team NASCAR Playoffs field.
