Home Communications believes the strength of our community lies in the education of our youth. Home Communications is a proud member of the NTCA- The Rural Broadband Association, a trade association that represents over 560 locally owned telephone companies, like ours, throughout rural America. Many NTCA member companies, like HCI, will be sending students from their communities to Washington, DC for the 2016 FRS Youth Tour. We are very excited to be offering this opportunity to you!
