Shentel has been added to a short list of leading cable operators who have teamed up to address industry issues, develop solutions and prepare for emerging technologies while taking advantage of the training and education available through SCTE and its chapters.
“Shentel employee membership and participation in SCTE has always been strong,” said Tom Whitaker, VP Shentel Cable. “SCTE represents the gold standard in technology training for our industry. Working with SCTE to provide our technicians with the most current training and certifications ensures our customers the best possible service experience.”
