Telecom/Broadband Financing and Investment Options

NCSC provides flexible loan and financial service products designed to match the business needs of rural telecommunications providers. Whether it’s construction projects or working capital, NCSC is dedicated to offering competitive rates and superior service to our members.

Loan Options

Term Loans

NCSC’s term loans for telecom members can be used for construction costs, to refinance debt with other lenders, for acquisitions and for other projects that meet feasibility requirements. These loans generally have terms up to nine years.

Lines of Credit

Lines of credit are designed to assist member telcos in meeting short-term cash needs and interim financing. These loans are administratively simple, with funds made available in a short period of time with no unused facility fee required.

Letters of Credit

Letters of credit provide credit assurance to a third party for the applicant’s performance and/or payments under a contract or other obligation. The terms and conditions of letters of credit are established on a case-by-case basis to meet the needs of the applicant or beneficiary.
