NTS Communications (NYSE MKT and TASE: NTS) announced their return to downtown Lubbock Monday with a grand opening and ribbon cutting.

NTS leadership made the commitment to actively support the downtown revitalization effort in Lubbock and as a first step has returned to its roots, Metro Tower, where it all began in 1981.

"As a company with a long history in Lubbock, we felt it was our responsibility as a large employer to really get behind the effort to bring life back to downtown. We believe that there was no better first step than returning our operation to Metro Tower," said Guy Nissenson, Chairman, President and CEO of NTS.

In recent years NTS has continued to grow, expanding operations into Gulf Region cities in Louisiana and Mississippi while also growing in cities around Texas.

During the first quarter of 2013, NTS began connecting its first fiber customers in Iowa Park, solidifying the company's presence in 15 Texas communities. Additionally, they continued sales and marketing efforts for its Wichita Falls, Texas metro build and saw solid demand from business customers in that market.

Following the close of the first quarter, NTS began signing up fiber customers in Hammond, Louisiana and continued construction on its FTTP network in southern Louisiana, where, in addition to Hammond, its fiber network will also include residential and business customers in the communities of Ponchatoula, Natalbany, Tickfaw, Independence and Amite, Louisiana.

"The future is bright in our industry and for NTS in particular," said Nissenson, "We are proud to be able to play a part in supporting our local economy while continuing our operations outside of Lubbock."
