Welcome to our news page.

01/20/15 We have created and posted a new course at the Online School that dives deep into SDN. Check it out here. It is free and open to all.

11/15/14 Our Certification Program for Rural Telcos is now ready and open for business! This is an exciting program to provide affordable learning and certification for field techs, CO techs, and customer service reps. Learn more here.
09/28/14 We added the CellStream Employment Listings area. If there are contract/jobs available at CellStream, they will be listed here.
09/28/14 The search capability has been enhanced on the main web site. It is a little slow, but the output is much better.
09/27/14 We added the TAG CLOUD feature to the site. This makes it easy to find content based on "tags". Simply click the work in the Tag cloud and you will be presented with a list of items that match that tag.
05/22/14 Thanks to the silly people around the globe that post illegitimate comments and advertising to stupid web sites, along with the failure of the JComments plug-in to properly filter these people, we have turned the Comments off. We apologize to all our legitimate users. Over the past year we banned over 300 IP addresses - not before looking them up, of course. So disrespectful and immature on the spammers part. You can still add a comment via the Contact Us page, and we welcome them.
04/03/14 The Network Science Certification Program is accelerating and we have turned up the Initial Network Skills Assessment. We will be sending out more information on this soon.

9/21/13 We are live with the latest version of our Online School! Now at www.netscionline.com using a newer version of Moodle!
9/15/13 We have gone live with the latest version of vTIGER CRM - very pleased though bugs took a long time to fix!

3/22/13 It was a great pleasure to work this past week with the Tohono O'Odham Indian Tribe as they migrate their access network to FTTH and a focus on the Internet Protocol.
2/18/13 Once again our Joomla site was hacked. So sorry to all our customers and users. It was corrected quickly and once again had to upgrade Joomla. Open Source is great, but who is testing security?
2/12/13 An honor this week to work with Great Plains Communications once again as they continue their fiber network expansion in Nebraska.
10/10/12 Thanks to the great people at the Telephone Association of New England for hosting our Wireshark program at Granite State Telephone company this week.
9/2/12 Last week the CellStream Joomla site was hacked. It was a horrendous experience, causing us many hours of work and the upgrade of our site to the Latest Joomla version. For about 24 hours we were even blacklisted on Google. The hack was relatively benign (a redirect) but frustrating nonetheless. We continue to work on the recovery and if there are broken links and so forth, please have patience with us. Feel free to report anything you see that does not appear to be correct and we will work on it as swiftly as possible. Thanks for everyone's patience.
07/07/12 The CellStream Intranet Web is now our home page! We think this makes navigating to key services and information easier and faster. Enjoy.
06/12/11 Finally added the ability to post comments on our articles. Feel free to add you input, knowledge and feedback at the bottom of any of our articles. You can track comments via RSS and much more. Enjoy!
04/09/11 We would like to welcome Dr. Avril Salter to the CellStream Contractor Team. We have known Dr. Salter ever since our days with TRA and are thrilled to work with her on several key projects at CellStream.
11/17/10 We just upgraded ProjectFork to version 3.0 and the Joomla CMS to the latest stable version. All went seamlessly. Thanks for your patience while the site was down for this upgrade tonight!
