Elk City Woman Enjoying Bluepeak's Reliable Internet
Fiber internet provider offering speeds and pricing not seen before in Oklahoma community.
(ELK CITY, Okla.) – Nov. 16, 2022 – It didn’t take long for Demi Hall to become frustrated with the internet service providers in Elk City.
After moving to the Oklahoma community last October, she signed up with the biggest local provider because it was her “only option, basically.” She quickly confirmed what many had told her: the service was “very spotty” from room to room in the house with a “slow connection.”
“We couldn’t even get internet in the other half of our house, and we don’t have a very big house,” she said. “We’d have to disconnect our phones from the WiFi if we were in the bedroom because the signal didn’t reach there. It was such a slow connection when we weren’t that far away from the router.”
Hall’s experience with internet service in Elk City is typical across the Sooner State. According to broadbandnow.com, Oklahoma ranks 46th in the nation in internet coverage, speed and availability. A Kansas City Federal Reserve study estimated 30 percent of Oklahomans have access to fewer than two wired internet providers.
Part of Hall’s frustration was knowing better options existed. She had fiber internet service while living in Wyoming just a few years ago.
“We couldn’t do anything to slow it down,” she said of her old fiber connection. “So, I knew it was what I wanted again.”
When Bluepeak began connecting its first customers in Elk City in late September, Hall was one of the first to sign up with the fiber internet provider. She mentioned the install was “quick and easy” and the first thing they did was connect their phones to stream Netflix.
“It’s fast and we don’t have any connection problems across our whole house,” Hall said of her new Bluepeak service.
Bluepeak’s fiber is not only faster and more reliable, but also easier on the budget in these uncertain economic times. Hall’s one-gigabit-per-second (Gbps) package from Bluepeak starts at $50 per month with transparent, all-in pricing, where the price on the website is the price on the bill. Bluepeak offers greater fiber speeds at great rates to residences and speeds as fast as 10 Gbps and beyond for businesses. Bluepeak customers also get equal upload and download speeds, and eero Secure, which provides whole-home WiFi and protects devices from online threats, ads and allows for customized content filtering.
Bluepeak aims to improve options for Oklahomans by expanding its fiber network to several Sooner State communities. According to Hall, she has “definitely” been recommending Bluepeak to everyone asking her about the internet provider.
Bluepeak service is now available to Elk City residents in the area south of Interstate 40 along Main Street. More neighborhoods will have access as construction continues.
