DirectLink is proud to help Canby and Mt. Angel become Smart Rural Communities. From the Pacific Ocean to Georgia’s coastal plains, a nationwide effort is underway to bring high-speed internet to small-town America. Rural broadband providers like us are taking lead to bring advanced digital infrastructure to the regions and the people they serve. Their goal? To enhance quality of life by creating Smart Rural Communities, which utilize a robust fiber network to jump start economic growth and improve access to first-rate education, healthcare, and government services.

Smart Rural Communities represents a network of communities powered by innovative community-based broadband providers building a brighter future for small town America. Smart Rural Communities, a program of NTCA, promotes rural broadband and its role in supporting innovative economic development, effective education, efficient energy distribution and use, state-of-the-art health care and other important issues for rural America.
