OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Most of the population of 400 of the town of Ripley does not have access to broadband. This takes a heavy social and economic toll on the residents keeping them from participating in remote work, distance learning and the digital economy. This is especially true during the time of the ongoing pandemic. Centranet in Collaboration with the town of Ripley is requesting funds from the State of Oklahoma and are committed to build FTTH to every household in the town. This is a last mile project that will provide access to up to gigabit speed broadband to 100% of the households in Ripley. We are requesting $831,237 from the state for this project and will invest $277,079 of our money to complete the project.
The town of Ripley does not have access to broadband keeping its population from participating in distance learning, remote work and the digital economy. This has become even more important during the time of the pandemic. With access to broadband over FTTH, the citizens of Ripley will be able to participate in the digital economy.
The project performance will be measured by milestones during a 12 month time-frame. These milestones are discussed in detail in the Project Narrative Document that is attached. The project will be completed within 12 months.
