TeleQuality Communications Expands into Fiber Market, Pushes for Fiber Deployment in Rural America


TeleQuality Communications has expanded into the fiber marketplace, with a focus on bringing access to rural healthcare providers and communities across the country.

“Our overarching goal is to deliver robust broadband infrastructure to rural communities that will ensure direct access to 21st century emerging healthcare technologies, such as telehealth, that save time, money and lives,” said TeleQuality Founder and CEO Tim Koxlien. “Telemedicine and healthcare technologies directly depend on quality, high-speed broadband connections. Our fiber offerings, combined with our high-touch customer service, will assist in bringing the fastest broadband speeds possible to rural healthcare to increase the quality of the care they deliver to the communities they serve.”

TeleQuality has already completed fiber projects in West Virginia and Texas.

The company serves more than 800 rural healthcare locations, and a significant number of those locations do not have access to broadband via fiber. These, and thousands of other rural communities, are the foundation of infrastructure projects in the coming years.

“Often, larger telecom companies choose to forgo investment in fiber buildouts to remote, rural areas, but these residents are the ones with the greatest need for those services,” Koxlien said. “With a bit of patience and a lot of creativity, we can build to these communities and bring the broadband services they need.”

The strategic move into fiber expansion also led TeleQuality to hire telecom industry veteran Steven Dorf as COO. Dorf previously served as president and general manager for Kansas Fiber Network, and brings nearly 30 years of experience in the telecom and networking industry to this position. He will head all fiber investment and expansion projects, as well as all aspects of TeleQuality operations including engineering, quality, procurement and customer satisfaction nationwide.

“We are thrilled to have such a talented and successful veteran in the telecom industry to lead us in our vision of expanding fiber into rural America,” said Koxlien. “Dorf’s breadth of knowledge and expertise in all stages of fiber deployment makes him a tremendous asset to the TeleQuality team.”
