Sho-Me Technologies, LLC, a certified interexchange carrier by the Missouri Public Service Commission, provides advanced telecommunications capability with access to network architecture and a business model which utilizes a fixed access network as an infrastructure for enabling other service providers, fixed or wireless, to provide advanced services to the end user.  The intended purpose of the network is not to limit the use, but instead to share the access between unlimited numbers of users.  The network is commercially available to both public and private entities.  It adheres to the principles contained in the FCC’s Internet Policy Statement.  It does not show favoritism to any applications and/or content over others, nor does it define the kind of services that can be offered by other providers.  Sho-Me Technologies, LLC merely provides the infrastructure, network and facilities to allow those connections to be made.  Sho-Me Technologies, LLC is not a service provider, but is a carrier of transport infrastructure which operates in accordance with all applicable statutes, rules and regulations.
