Bluepeak, an innovative internet provider, announced today that it has received franchise approval from the city of Altus, Okla. to build a high-speed fiber network to meet the growing needs of the community, today and in the future. The approximately $9 million network expansion will bring Bluepeak service to more than 9,000 residences and businesses in Altus.
“We’re very proud of our partnership with the city of Altus to enhance internet connectivity here,” said Rich Fish, CEO of Bluepeak. “We can’t wait to bring our next-generation, fiber-to-the-home network to the great community of Altus to meet the growing needs for how we all live.”
With Bluepeak’s advanced fiber connection, residential customers can get up to 5 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of symmetrical bandwidth (upload and download speeds) and businesses can get up to 10 Gbps and beyond of symmetrical bandwidth. Bluepeak’s fiber network will provide faster speeds, better connectivity, and the bandwidth to connect more devices for internet, streaming, gaming and more.
“We're excited to have Bluepeak investing in our community, and improving broadband access in our city," said Altus Mayor Robert Garrison. "We look forward to building a great relationship with them to make Altus an even better place to live and work.”
“I support the efforts of Bluepeak to bring broadband into southwest Oklahoma,” said Okla. Sen. Brent Howard. “The opportunities that will come with quality, high-speed internet will open new work possibilities for the residents of Altus. We live in an age of information and remote capabilities; this will make Altus more connected and accessible for growth.”
Bluepeak has coordinated with the city of Altus and will begin construction on the new network this summer. For more information and to receive the latest updates, visit www.mybluepeak.com
