OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Lake Region Technology & Communications (LRTC) would like to build its fiber to the home (FTTH) in Braggs, Ok. We currently offer internet, home phone, and television service to the town's borders on our electric distribution lines. We provide a complete fiber network with matched-up and download speeds from 100 to 1000 Mbps. One hundred forty-four homes would benefit from our service to improve learning online, working from home, remote health care, and promoting a higher quality of life.
Braggs is a small rural town in Northeast Oklahoma that has a population of 240 citizens. The poverty rate is 5.2%. Braggs is made up of diverse ethnic groups, White, American Indian, Hispanic and African American. Braggs is home to the Army base, Camp Gruber. Braggs has a large population of retired military personnel. These facts were reported by the website DataUSA.IO
Many of the residents were familiar with our service outside city limits, they overwhelmingly approved LRTC's FTTH to Braggs. We will send postcards, use signage and even knock on doors to encourage sign-ups. Once construction begins, take rates will soar. That has been LRTC's experience in the past.
