Midwest City Reaches Agreement with Bluepeak on Fiber Internet Expansion
Internet provider will bring state-of-the-art fiber network to residences and businesses.
(MIDWEST CITY, Okla.) – March 7, 2023 – A faster, more reliable and more affordable internet is coming to Midwest City, Okla.
Bluepeak announced today a franchise agreement with the community of Midwest City to build a high-speed fiber network that will meet the growing needs of Oklahomans today and in the future. The roughly $30 million expansion effort will bring Bluepeak service to nearly 30,000 residences and businesses in Midwest City.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Midwest City to bring next-generation internet connectivity to the community and all of our other expansion markets in Oklahoma,” said Rich Fish, CEO of Bluepeak. “Our fiber-to-the-home network is built for the future to meet the growing needs for how we all live, and we’re excited to show the expanding community of Midwest City that we’re a different kind of internet provider.”
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. Furthermore, research from a 2020 report by Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond on “Bringing Broadband to Rural America” determined that broadband access and adoption are linked to increased job and population growth, higher rates of new business formation and home values, and lower unemployment rates.
“Midwest City residents are going to be excited about Bluepeak’s entrance into our community,” said Matt Dukes, Midwest City Mayor. “We’re thankful for their investment here because we know it will mean a better opportunity for connectivity. That opportunity is something our residents and businesses deserve.”
“High-speed internet is essential for the residents and businesses in Midwest City,” said Senator Brenda Stanley, R-Midwest City. “I welcome Bluepeak as an option for our citizens and military families who deserve access to affordable and reliable high-speed broadband.”
