........The program recently gained two new participants: Matanuska Telephone Association (MTA) of Alaska as well as Scobey, Mont.-based Sagebrush Cellular, which does business under the Nemont brand name in northeastern and south central Montana plus western North Dakota.

Verizon said it will lease Matanuska its 700 MHz upper C-Block wireless spectrum in Denali Borough and much of Matanuska-Susitna Borough.
