By connecting new service areas into our established network, valued at $100 million, we can effect change for these communities quickly and efficiently. This $4,325,262 in ARPA funds will undoubtedly be a source of positive change in countless lives across parts of southwest Oklahoma by enhancing access to education, better healthcare, and new work opportunities. The opportunity is vast, and the impact of providing access to modern life through broadband expansion will be felt for generations to come.
The communities served by this project reside in some of Oklahoma?s most expansive farming counties, containing millions of acres in farmland and producing hundreds of millions of dollars in crops and livestock according to the 2017 Census of Agriculture.
We will prepare a report to highlight the number of homes passed, the number of homes served, and the most common speed selected by the customer.
