About

Rural Insight Research and Technology is a network technology company focused on the needs of people in rural and remote areas.  We are observant problem solvers, eager for a puzzle, with both the technical know-how and the rural work experience to ‘get it’ and to ‘get it done’.

Rural Insight sources and designs specifically for the challenges faced in difficult communication environments:  products and ideas for rural and remote network technology.

Consumer products are available via our online store,  at our Mather location, and at select trade-shows.    We provide in person consultation for business and community projects.

Research and development is core to Rural Insight’s  business.  The impetus to the company in its present form came from Robbie Melvin’s Master’s thesis work regarding perceptions of networked technology in rural and remote locations.  Her work continues with a focus on putting products into use in industry.
