NNTC’s response to COVID-19

Our Main Office

Our main office in Jackson has re-opened, Monday through Friday from 8 am – 4:30 pm.  We do require a mask and a temperature check for all visitors.  We also ask only one family in our lobby at a time.  You’re also welcome to use our dropbox for bill payment.   

Entering Homes and Businesses

The nature of the business at Northeast Nebraska Telephone Company (NNTC) requires staff to enter homes and businesses. The company now has new protocols in place, which not only protect technicians but also protect customers.

As of June 8th, technicians will return to entering homes and businesses for service calls, as long as everyone in the home/business is well.  Phone agents will ask this question when service is set-up, the technicans will ask again upon arrival.  Customers will be asked to stay more than 10 feet away from the technician inside the home or business.  Technicians will wear a mask and gloves when inside a home or business.  Technicians may also ask customers to wear a mask.

School Discount

When students were sent home in March of 2020 to continue classroom work from home, NNTC offered a student discount on internet.

We will continue a student discount on internet for the fall semester of 2020.  Click here to learn more about the discount.
