TANE is the oldest and largest trade association for the local exchange carrier industry in the six states region of New England. Our telco membership is comprised of facilities-based telecommunications incumbent carriers, including FairPoint Communications, TDS Telecom, and all independent New England companies.
TANE’s associate membership is comprised of businesses that have a professional interest in telecommunications. These businesses include manufacturers and suppliers of telecommunications equipment, professional consultants to the industry, information service providers, wireless providers, as well as ISPs, cable companies, and others.
TANE relies heavily on its committee volunteers. Each committee is made up of member company staff who are experts in their field. Together, they plan and provide topic specific education and training to our members as well as networking and professional growth to the volunteers.
