A NOTE FROM JIMMY: SEPTEMBER 2018
I find it hard to believe that summer break is over and school is in session. County fairs have wrapped up and the State Fair is around the corner. Living in rural Kansas, I love how these events bring our communities together. I had the opportunity to help run a booth at the Norton County Fair again this year, and I always enjoy being able to play a small part in the joy it brings to the community.Read More
A NOTE FROM JIMMY
Communications services have really come a long way, especially in recent years. While voice/phone service is a core service for Nex-Tech, the way it is delivered today is quite varied. We can provide traditional phone service, Cloud Voice, or mobile voice (through our affiliation with Nex-Tech Wireless). All options are state-of-the-art services. But, when you expand communications beyond a phone call, you can truly see where things are becoming very different. The Internet has launched many new ways to communicate. Some of these new options are voice or video based, and others are more text based. In many ways, voice service is becoming an application (App) over an Internet connection. Our local youth have already made this transition, as I learn from my high school and junior high daughters. Sounds a bit futuristic to those of us that remember party lines, but there are benefits to this evolution in areas such as telemedicine and distance learning.Read More
