Fiber Buildout Pre-Construction Make-Ready at Central REC
Central REC embarked on a five-year, five-phase project to bring high-speed internet to at least 18,000 locations including schools and businesses.
As of March 2020, 25 percent of Oklahoma public-school children lack home internet access, according to the Oklahoma State Education Department. One school district within Central’s service area projects that 40 percent of the students within the school district lack internet accessibility. For these students, it’s not a matter of reliability. It’s accessibility. It’s a hindrance for students, and it is imperative that the gap is filled. Central was in the best position to fill it. Central embarked on a five-year, five-phase project to bring high-speed internet to at least 18,000 locations including schools, businesses, and residents. The project consists of more than 4,400 miles of fiber line, 95 percent of which is aerial, and the remaining five percent is underground. Construction began in October 2020 and has a rigorous timeline to stay on track.
