Telergee Benchmark Study
By definition, a benchmark serves as a standard by
which others may be measured or judged.
Each year, the TELERGEE Alliance, with the
financial support of CoBank, conducts a benchmark study of more than 230
nationwide rural ILECs which allows participants to
compare their company against other companies with
competing or similar services. Benchmarking can
produce comparisons which help management identify
savings opportunities, highlight company strengths
or weaknesses, and set goals for improvement.
benchmark study collects data in order to define
relevant peer groups for comparison and
includes key measurements related to:
allocations, liabilities, debt and equity
Revenues, expenses and profitability
Federal and state support levels
Non-regulated investments and operations,
particularly wireless, Internet and cable TV
Service penetrations and customer counts
Payroll and staffing data
Forecasted income and investment information
Credit rating definitions and scores
