TDS is putting broadband into the hands of more residents in the Wyandotte, Okla., area by completing part of its American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus-funded broadband Internet project.
When construction on the stimulus-funded project wraps early this summer, about 225 residents will be able to get access to a broadband connection.
The service provider is laying fiber cabling and installing four remote terminals (RT) that will house necessary network electronics through its Oklahoma Communication Systems company to provide broadband access to more residents and businesses.
This is just one of three projects the telco is conducting in Oklahoma. It recently completed a project around Kellyville, Okla., that will offer nearly 900 residents, including subscribers who live around Cyril, Elgin, Fletcher and Inola, a broadband connection.
Similar to other areas where it is in the process of completing broadband stimulus projects, the telco will alert area residential and business customers when service is available to their locations.
By using the ARRA stimulus funding, TDS said it has expanded broadband service to more than 28,000 households across the U.S.
