OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Most of the population of 250 of the town of Mulhall 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 Mulhall is requesting funds from the State of Oklahoma and is 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 Mulhall. We are requesting $535,266 from the state for this project and will invest $178,422 of our money to complete the project.
The population of Mulhall does not have access to high speed internet which creates roadblocks for them in participating in the digital economy, remote work and distance learning. The poverty rate in Mulhall is high at over 30% and the pandemic has disproportionately effected the population because of lack of high speed broadband.
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.
