Pioneer will begin construction of an aggressive fiber-to-the-home build-out in the cities of Okeene and Thomas, Oklahoma. This project will start with Okeene on June 14th, 2021 and Thomas tentatively starting on August 30, with a completion date for both in November of this year. This project is estimated at $2 million and the project was awarded to USA Construction, Oklahoma City, OK.
The fiber project will consist of 37 miles of fiber and serve 702 residents in Okeene and 766 in Thomas. Pioneer is future-proofing the needs of our customers by overbuilding the existing copper facilities with high-speed fiber-optics. Fiber will allow customers to have full access to services like broadband speeds up to 1Gig, multiple iVideo streams, High-Definition, Cloud DVR, Live-Streaming, Security Cameras and Home Automation.
Pioneer offers affordable fiber-optic high-speed Internet to both residential and business customers for the same price and the same speeds, while enhancing the users experience with symmetrical download and upload speeds. With the increase in IoT (Internet of Things) devices, Pioneer realizes upload speeds are just as important as download speeds.
