04/17/2020 – In light of Governor Ivey declaring a Health Emergency in response to COVID-19 and after careful consideration, NHTC board of directors and management team have decided to cancel the 2020 annual meeting. This decision was made with the well-being of our membership, communities, and employees in mind. NHTC By-Laws state that if a quorum is not attained, that the current elected board of director seats up for reelection (New Hope Seats 4 & 5) will continue to serve for a one-year term in which those board seats will be voted on at the 2021 annual meeting for a 3-year term limit.

While the 2020 annual meeting has been cancelled, NHTC will continue with the Capital Credit allocation process. Qualifying members will receive a Capital Credit check around the end of May for their 2019 Capital Credit Retirement (checks will not be issued for amounts below $5.00; must have active service). NHTC appreciates the cooperation and support of its members who have made this refund possible.

We apologize for any inconvenience and greatly appreciate your understanding and support during these unprecedented times. Stay safe!

03/16/2020 – NHTC’s Keep Americans Connected Pledge

NHTC is proud to sign on to the “Keep Americans Connected Pledge” at the request of FCC Chairman Pai.  The pledge is as follows:

Given the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on American society, NHTC pledges for the next 60 days to:

(1) not terminate service to any residential or small business customers because of their inability to pay their bills due to the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic;

(2) waive any late fees that any residential or small business customers incur because of their economic circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic; and

(3) open its Wi-Fi hotspots to any American who needs them. NHTC currently does not have public Wi-Fi hotspots, but is evaluating our options to place some within our communities as quickly as possible.     

*This in no way puts a stay on fees associated with non-payment. 

**Customers who know they will endure a hardship associated with actions taken to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 should contact NHTC as soon as possible (256-723-4211) to discuss their accounts.
