PIONEER TO COMPLETE FIBER OPTIC INSTALLATION IN EXTENDED AREA OUTSIDE OF OKARCHE

JANUARY 26, 2022- Pioneer is expanding fiber-optic to rural areas outside of Okarche, OK as part of the RUS (Rural Utilities Service) ReConnect Grant Program awarded to Pioneer in July 2020. Construction for the project will begin in March and be completed in May of this year.  

The Fiber project is for the ReConnect build within the Okarche exchange, plus the Alternative Connect America Model (ACAM) build located on the north side of Okarche. These two projects consist of almost 54 miles and will provide fiber optic service to 114 locations. Dragon Utilities was awarded the bid and construction costs for this project are just over $1.4 million. 

Residents located in the areas being built will have faster and more robust broadband speeds, allowing full access to services such as, 4K live-streaming video, enhanced gaming experience, iVideo streaming TV, High-Definition security cameras and robust home automation systems.
