Help for Communities Without Broadband Infrastructure

Rural individuals and businesses that lack broadband infrastructure are at a disadvantage - but they CAN make a difference! Numerous resources are available for communities that currently lack any type of broadband infrastructure. These include:
  1. Funding sources such as grants and / or loans from the federal government.

  2. Guides developed by extension personnel at other universities (which actually walk communities step-by-step towards becoming connected).

  3. A list of consultants who can perform feasibility studies for different types of broadband systems in rural areas (wireless, fiber to the home, public private partnerships).

  4. Success stories about rural communities here in Oklahoma that have been able to bring broadband access to their towns.
