A New Necessity, Fiber-to-the-Home

 

In the 1930s, rural America had been left in the dark as electricity made its way across the country.  Electricity had become a modern necessity, and big cities enjoyed the opportunities this emerging technology brought. But rural folks had to do without.

Into the gap stepped the hardworking men and women of rural America, who formed electric cooperatives to bring power to areas that had been overlooked. In our part of Oklahoma, they formed Lake Region Electric Cooperative.

In the 21st century, a new technology is emerging: Broadband Internet. This new technology is transforming lives and bringing economic development to the areas that adopt it.  Once again, we have been left behind.  Your cooperative must step up to the plate and do what others won't do.

 

Blazing-Fast Internet, Fiber-to-the-Home

 

Lake Region Electric Cooperative (LREC) is implementing a fiber-based communication system across our electric grid. With this investment, we can provide fiber-to-the-home internet service through Lake Region Technology and Communications, a subsidiary of LREC. You will enjoy access to blazing-fast high-speed internet, crystal-clear HD television and unlimited local and long distance home phone.

We have identified 14 zones across our service area and are collecting expressions of interest that will ultimately help guide our construction plan to expand our fiber network.

We are excited to release these fiber service zones. However, all of this will take time, estimated 2-3 years of construction.  Provided that we can reach our goal of subscribers for each expansion zone, we will expand our fiber service network.  Remember we are building a 100% fiber optic network that will be scalable for hundreds for years into the future.

The zones that have the most backers signed-up will be the first new fiber optic lines built. Do not wait, this is a great technology, sign-up and completes the online backer form today.

LRTC will waive the $250.00 installation fee for the on-line backers. For anyone who was not a backer of our Crowdfiber campaign, but signs up for service during the construction phase, we will reduce the connect fee.  There will be no new services connected after the construction crews have left your neighborhood until all the other neighborhoods are completed.  A connect fee of $250.00 plus a line extension fee will apply to all new services at that time depending on the distance of the new service from the existing fiber tap.

More than 1,500 members are already surfing the web at high-speeds, and your area could be next! Get your neighbors and friends on board to build your zone and join the rural fiber-to-the-home revolution!

FTTH Update | Lake Crossing Near Ranger Creek is Complete!

3:55pm September 18, 2017

To bring Lake Region fiber optic services to our members, we have launched a major construction project to suspend and bury miles of brand new fiber optic cable in rural parts of Cherokee, Muskogee, and Wagoner counties. Please remember we are building a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network from the ground up. Construction will take time but understand, we are building a network that will last years into the future. We appreciate the patience of all our early backers in this project.

Zone 5 – Perk | This zone was the fastest zone to reach the goal needed of backers to provide service with our Crowdfiber Campaign. Thank you to all the early backers for launching this zone into service first. Zone 5 – Perk was completed in March 2017. Once the construction is completed in a zone, the contractor crews will move to the next zone. Any new service requested after crews have left a zone could take 8 - 10 weeks to connect. We understand this can be discouraging and we appreciate your patience on your fiber connection. We encourage members to sign up before or while construction crews are working in a zone. We would like for you to consider the service is worth the wait.

Zone 1 - Ft Gibson | Crews have just completed a 1550 foot span over the Ft Gibson Lake near Ranger Creek. Fiber crews are now working on building the line on the north side of Ranger Creek (Rocky Haven Dr, Basore Cove Rd, Pistol Point Rd, Banana Cove and north along Highway 80).


Zone 2 - Hulbert | Crews are working on finishing the remaining drop request in this area, roughly 170 more houses need to be connected. We have connected 200 homes in this zone. We are also evaluating the feasibility of extending Zone 2 - Hulbert further north to reach more members. Be sure you are signed up and registered if you live north of Lost City toward Peggs. These pre-registration “backers” guide our construction plans.

Zone 12 - Sparrow Hawk | Mainline construction is finishing up, and we have released the drop request. The members should start seeing crews running service lines overhead and underground to all the addresses registered in this zone. Splicing and testing will also be underway while drop crews are working in the area. Once construction is complete in this zone, new service requests could take 8 - 10 weeks similar to other completed zones.

Zone 11 - County Line | Mainline construction has started in this zone! We are sorry for all the delays and unforeseen issues we had regarding this zone starting construction. This zone was placed on hold for several months. Zone 11 – County Line is a high priority to complete based on all the backers who have pre-registered so long ago. We understand the frustration and are working to connect all the backers in this zone to our fiber network as fast as we can.

Zone 3 - Keys | We have mainline construction proceeding in this area, Highway 82, Houseshoe Bend Rd, Indian Rd, and Stone Chapel Rd. Mainline construction moves a lot faster than drops and splicing. This zone is next in line in order of zones with the most backers signed up on our Crowdfiber website. Meanwhile, if any other zone passes Zone 3 - Keys in the number of backers, they could be built sooner.

The remaining zones are up in the air if we will build them based on the current backers pre-registered. Be sure to help bring Lake Region FTTH services to your area and launch your zone into construction, next, by pre-registering online at register.lrecok.net or calling 918-772-2526. LRTC will waive the $250.00 installation fee for the early online backers. More than 1,600 members are already surfing the web at high-speeds, and your area could be next! Get your neighbors and friends on board.

4045 FTTH Backers and Growing!

11:18am August 28, 2017

We greatly appreciate all the support and pre-registrations we are receiving for our new fiber optic services.  The more communities that get active fiber optic service, the more the excitement grows regarding our network expansion—let’s keep the momentum going. You, the FTTH project backers, guide our construction crews where we will build next. Please help spread the word and keep encouraging your friends, family, and neighbors to sign up for our blazing fast fiber optic internet, cable TV or home phone service. 

FTTH | Zone 11 - County Line

2:31pm August 25, 2017

Lake Region is very pleased to inform our member's progress is happening on both electrical and fiber-to-the-home work on County Line Rd | Zone 11 - County Line in Ft. Gibson. Thank you again to all the members for your continued patience as we work to finish this project.

FTTH | Zone 2 - Hulbert

9:05am August 17, 2017

Members are going LIVE with fiber-to-the-home in Zone 2- Hulbert.  Be sure to register for service! Help your zone reach the goal needed, and launch your zone into active service.  You do not want to miss out on blazing fast internet - 100 Mbps, cable TV, and home phone service offered by #LakeRegionFiber #FTTH register.lrecok.net 

"White Color" Wi-Fi Router Issue

11:04am August 2, 2017

Lake Region is aware of a Wi-Fi issue dropping intermittently leading to interrupted in the range and speed of our Wi-Fi signal on our new model "white color" ONU | Wi-Fi routers. We have the manufacturer developing a software fix. Once this software fix is available we will push an update to all the ONU | Wi-Fi routers in our member's homes. We are sorry for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we continue to resolve this issue.

July 26th | Fiber Construction Update

11:01am July 26, 2017

Fiber builds are expensive, time-consuming, frustrating, rewarding, and more. It is not always easy making sure all members (backers) have the chance to be involved in the project updates. We send sincere thanks to every single member for their continued support, even during the challenges and frustrations.

Response from our members has been extraordinary. We know it can be frustrating for people to realize that their community may not be able to get fiber this year. With more than 3,000 miles of electric lines in eight counties, it will take years to provide service in all LREC communities. The more communities that get active fiber optic service, the more the excitement grows—let’s keep the momentum going.

Fiber is being delivered first to zones who have shown the most interest by pre-registering at register.lrecok.net However; this is just one way we evaluate when and where Lake Region can build. We also evaluate factors that influence overall costs, such as a community’s geography and timeline for seeing a positive financial return on our investment, among other factors.

Phase one is in full swing with 15 expansion zones which have construction crews working in 4 of the 15 zones.

 Zone 5 – Perk:  This zone fiber construction is complete, contract crews have relocated. Service is available. If a member is interested in service, please sign up on our Crowdfiber website register.lrecok.net. Since construction is complete and the early backer $50 deposit deal is over for this zone, there are three ways to get service connected. A $250 installation fee with no contract commitment, a $99 installation fee with a one-year contract, and $0 FREE installation with a two-year contract. (Early terminations fee of $25 per month for the remaining contract). We have a four to five-week turnaround on request for new fiber service in Zone 5 - Perk. 

Zone 1 – Ft Gibson: This zone is still on hold due to the lake crossing project. We will update our backers in this zone via email and website, once we have a clear timeframe of when this lake crossing will be completed and can expect light readings for the remaining backers in this zone.

Zone 11 – County Line: Every day brings something new for this expansion zone. Our electric contractors who had the bid to relocate our electric lines, along the road widening project have quit due to unresolvable differences. We understand the frustration we are hearing from our project backers in this zone. We are now looking at bringing in a new electrical contractor group to complete this project or move forward with our inhouse construction crews. We have a deadline we need to meet for the Cherokee Nation. We will update our backers in this zone once we have a clear timeframe on when the electric work in this zone will be finished, and our fiber crews can start work on this zone. The continued patience and support of our backers is what will make Lake Region fiber optics a long-term success.

Zone 12 – Sparrow Hawk: We have mainline fiber construction crews working in this zone. This zone does have some geographic obstacles we will run into with our construction crews, our goal is to have home installations started in this zone within 90 days. We do have roughly 50 backers in this zone who have signed up but have not completed the registration by paying the $50 deposit needed. If you need to verify please call 918-772-2526. These backers with no deposit will be removed from the backer list if we do not receive the $50 deposit. We are only building fiber optic drops to the houses that are in a designated expansion zone with a deposit on file.

Zone 2 – Hulbert: Home installs have started, we have 47 backers active. Service will be established based on electric substation feeders. We are starting with Hulbert feeder 1 – Shady Grove Road, Killebrew, 710 rd. Hulbert feeder 3 – Grace Hudlin Rd, Highway 51, Clear Creek, Woodland Hills, Groat Rd. Hulbert feeder 4 – downtown Hulbert, inside the city limits of Hulbert, Hulbert Landing Rd.  We have over 400 orders and climbing for service in this zone. Fiber build outs are time-consuming.

Zone 3 – Keys: We have mainline fiber construction crews working to connect the Keys POP building with the Park Hill POP building.

FTTH | Zone 12 - Sparrow Hawk Update:

2:28pm July 12, 2017

The story has always been the same - our members asked us to provide high-speed internet. We are listening and building out service based on demand.  Mainline fiber-to-the-home construction has started in Zone 12- Sparrow Hawk. Please be sure you are preregistered and have a $50 deposit posted.  We do not want anything which is interested in service to miss out on this great offer.  $50 deposit shows you are interested in service; we will then waive the installation cost and refund your $50 deposit once service is connected. Be sure to help spread the word to all your neighbors they do not want to miss out on this great new blazing fast fiber optic internet, cable TV, and home phone service offered by Lake Region.  

FTTH | Zone 1 – Ft Gibson UPDATE:

2:09pm July 6, 2017

We appreciate your patience as we continue to build our fiber-to-the-home network. Currently, our crews are waiting on special material to cross Ft. Gibson Lake, at the mouth of Ranger Creek. The fiber connection of the remaining backers in the Zone 1 – Ft Gibson | Feeder 4, along Highway 80, is taking longer than anticipated due to this lake crossing. We thank you for your understanding in this major project as we continue to build fiber and as always we appreciate your business.

Zone 11 – County Line UPDATE:

3:55pm June 30, 2017

We appreciate your patience as we continue to build our fiber-to-the-home network. Due to some unforeseen issues with Zone 11 – County Line. First, the Cherokee Nation road project and now Patriot Solutions electric contractors working hard battling rocks and hard digging to relocate our electric lines for the road widening project. This zone has taken a lot longer than we anticipated.  We understand the frustration with not completing this as expected. We are happy to report that the situation is improving and we are moving forward with our fiber construction and expect to have installs started in the next 60 days for Zone 11 – County Line. We thank you for understanding in this major fiber project and as always we appreciate your business.

June 2017 - Construction Update

1:59pm June 6, 2017

Zone 5 – Perk - is complete. 292 members have been connected to fiber in this zone. (Zone will be closing soon, contractors will relocate) Installation is $75 for this zone currently and will change once crews relocate. The turnaround is 3 to 4 weeks for a fiber drop and installation to be complete if members sign up in Zone 5 – Perk.

Zone 1 – Ft Gibson - Mainline work is 90% complete. Fiber drops and splicing work is underway. Installation is $75 for this zone since construction has started. 94 members have been connected. Home installs are being scheduled now for the remaining backers in Zone 1 – Ft Gibson. We had to move several backers in the Zone 1 – Ft Gibson across the Lake to Zone 2- Hulbert. These will be connected as we build and connect the backers in Zone 2 – Hulbert. Be sure to register for fiber service before crews complete this zone. We do not want to miss anyone who is interested in the high-speed internet, cable TV or home phone.

Zone 2 – Hulbert - Mapping is complete and mainline construction crews are working in this zone. The goal is to start calling, and scheduling home installs in 2 -3 weeks?

Zone 12 – Sparrow Hawk – Working on the mapping of this zone. Hope to release this zone for construction after Zone 2 – Hulbert mainline work is complete.

Zone 3 – Keys - Mapping is complete. We are seeing steadied backer growth, but we still need more backers in this zone before we release construction crews.

Zone 11 – County Line - Mapping is complete. (Still on hold due to road project) We have electric contractors currently working in this zone relocating our electric lines along the road. Once this is complete, we plan to bring fiber crews back to this zone to work.

The remaining zones are up in the air if we will build them based on the current backers. Please help raise awareness of our fiber expansion campaign within your zone.  We need more backers in our fiber-to-the-home project before we release some of these remaining zones into construction. It is up to you the members to help get more backers (neighbors) signed up in these zones before we proceed. You can view the numbers required on the website register.lrecok.net

Southridge Tahlequah - we are conducting a feasibility study.  If you live or know somebody who may be interested in fiber-to-the-home services from Lake Region, please encourage these residents to sign up and let us know they are interested.  The decision to build fiber into Southridge all depends on the number of backers we can get signed up. Join the crowd and bring Lake Region fiber to your neighborhood.

FTTH Zone 11 - County Line Construction Delayed

11:27am December 19, 2016

Construction of fiber optic lines for Zone 11 - County Line is being delayed due to a proposed road widening project.  The road widening project covers County line, Six Mile, and Rocky Top Roads.  Our electric lines adjacent to these roads must be relocated before we can install the fiber optic cables on them.  The road project has been delayed due to some environmental issues.  Cherokee Nation is working diligently to resolve the environmental issues. Once we get the green light for the project, we will start construction of the new electric lines and the fiber optic cable that will attach to the new lines.  The fiber optics construction crews have proceeded to start construction in Zone 1 - Ft. Gibson.  We anticipate that we will be able to start the construction of the Zone 11 - County Line by the completion of Zone 1 - Ft. Gibson main line (backbone) construction. 

We have begun scheduling in-home installation for new fiber optic services in Zone 5 - Perk

1:46pm December 15, 2016

We have begun scheduling in-home installation for new fiber optic services, high-speed internet, HD cable television & home phone in Zone 5 - Perk. If you are a new user, welcome to the rural broadband revolution.
We love hearing from those who are now using the service and encourage those who are waiting to pre-register - Do Not Wait. Once crews are finished in Zone 5 - Perk, crews will relocate to the next zone and it may be awhile before we can get back to this area. Remember, your electric cooperative is stepping up to the plate to bring the gold standard of broadband internet. We are working hard for you! 

When will fiber come to my home?

1:58pm December 1, 2016

“When will fiber come to my home/neighborhood/community?” Is probably the most common question we hear at Lake Region and we understand. You have gone without fiber optic services for a long time, and now the best possible option could be dangling out in front of your home – close enough to touch.
We are in the process of a major construction project, which involves a lot of working parts. We are working with and managing numerous contract crews with a lot of challenging unknowns; weather, road crossings, etc.  We are building out fiber optic cable from our electric substations and using existing poles.


1 - The first step is engineering and mapping the fiber network (where the cable will be installed) based on the demand from the Crowdfiber pre-registrations website. (register.lrecok.net)


2 - The second step is hanging the fiber backbone, the main lines with splice points. Once you see the main lines installed on your road, you are 90 days from having fiber optic services at your home.


3  - The third step is another crew will run the drop lines from the main line to your home either underground or aerial, the same way the electric has been run to the home. This crew will also install a NID box on the side of your home if you have signed up for fiber service. 


4 - Final step, we will schedule a convenient time for a technician to come to your home and connect your home to the network. Fiber installation can take 1 to 3 hours, depending on the number of services connected. Our technicians are highly trained and will help guide you through the process of where fiber may need to be installed inside your home. Currently, we are in the final step for Zone 5 – Perk, members are being connected. We plan on moving to parts of Zone 11 – County Line and Zone 1 – Fort Gibson next.


We know you are eager to experience our high-speed fiber internet. The plan you order is the actual speed and data limit you will receive. Your experience with our service depends on a number of factors. A lot of older computers, routers, and other equipment are simply not equipped to handle the higher speeds that Lake Region’s fiber offers. So you may need to consider some upgrades to maximize your fiber experience.
In the future, folks in  Lake Region’s fiber service area will be able to sign up and get service started in a few days. Those of you waiting patiently in the crowd are on the ground floor of this landmark fiber-to-the-home revolution. We are building a fiber communications network from scratch, with a lot of moving parts, and off of this system we are extending you fiber internet service, HD cable TV, and home phone. We appreciate your patience in our fiber network build.

ATTN: All members who live in Zone 5 – Perk, your zone has the most pre-registered backers on our crowdfiber website. We are going to start fiber construction in Zone 5 – Perk, starting in September.

For Zone 5 residents only, the free installation period will end September 10th.  After September 10th, while the construction is in progress in your neighborhood, members can join the crowd and sign up for service at a reduced installation fee of $75.00 (non-refundable). Once the construction is completed in Zone 5 - Perk, a standard installation fee of $250.00 will apply, plus any additional line extension fees may be applicable.

We encourage members in Zone 5 - Perk who may be interested in Fiber-To-The-Home services to sign up now ! 

Construction Will Be Starting Soon!

11:17am July 13, 2016

The first reels of fiber optic cable are making their way to our headquarters. Don’t wait, construction will be starting soon! Sign up for our best offer, $50 deposit will get fiber installed at your home.  After construction starts in your zone, you will have to pay an installation fee and may have a line extension fee. So don’t miss out on this early backer sign up. Blazing fast fiber optic internet, cable TV, or home phone. Sign up today before construction starts.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Fiber Optic Reels

1,000 Backers!!

2:19pm July 8, 2016

We greatly appreciate all the support that we have received on our Crowdfiber website. Please keep encouraging your friends, family, and neighbors to sign up for our blazing fast fiber optic internet!

 

Great News! Update | Zone 11- County Line has been added

1:04pm June 22, 2016

Great news! We have decided to add another zone to our expansion project.  Zone 11- County Line has been added to the map. We have seen a demand for fiber optic services in this area. The members have spoken and we have had several backers sign up in this area.

If your address is in the area of Zone 11 – County Line, we are planning on providing fiber internet service, cable TV, and home phone! 

NEW ZONE 11 - County Line

We still need more backers to sign up!

1:34pm June 1, 2016

Backers have been increasing on the website over the last month. However, we still need more backers to sign up and help make this Fiber-to-the-Home expansion project a success.  As you can see on the website we now have around 450 backers in the designated expansion zones. We also have around 330 backers outside of the expansion zones who are interested in our Fiber-to-the-Home. This is also a good sign. We will keep monitoring the backer’s locations and we hope to build fiber lines to the areas of the most interest.

No matter where you live, the goal is to get at least 45% of the members in your zone to Join the Crowd. It is possible that a zone is eliminated from Phase 1 due to lack of interest and another zone added to phase 1 because the interest is high in another area.

Some members may have noticed we have engineer consultants in town mapping Zone 1 and 5. These contractors are observing our system and measuring what it will take to build fiber to each home in Zone 1 & 5.  If you see these contractors on your property they are conducting work for LREC. They will be collecting GPS coordinates of each one of our poles. Their crews may be using an ATV or a motorcycle and should be clearly identified as LREC contractors.

Keep up the great work and help spread the word. Help us get more members to Join the Crowd, so we can bring fiber to your neighborhood.

Pulse Broadband Mapping

Join the Crowd!

8:47am April 11, 2016

fiber expansion map

In a little over a month, 224 folks have Joined the Crowd.

Some have asked about the zones and what that means. Let us explain. We split our phase 1 expansion area into 10 different geographic zones, primarily by substation. We begin each build at the substation level, so that is the most logical approach to creating fiber campaign zones.

Each zone has a very different makeup in terms of the number of members living within the territory, which is why we used a take-rate approach to establishing goals. Take rate simply means the percent of the homes that take our broadband service to the total numbers oh homes in the area. We need to have nearly half of the residents in a zone subscribe to the service in order for it to be able to pay its own way.

So no matter where you live, the goal is to get at least 45% of the members in your zone to Join the Crowd. It is possible that a zone is eliminated from Phase 1 due to lack of interest in the zone and another zone added to phase 1 because the interest is high in that area.

How do you get others to join the Crowd? Just start talking! Look at the map and figure out who you know in your zone. You can plug in addresses on the home page to determine if someone is eligible (like you did when you signed up), or just zoom in using the map feature. If you’re in the social media, share the website there. Some members are even going door to door to build interest!

 With this grassroots campaign approach, YOU the members can help determine where we build fiber next! Join the crowd! 

Lake Region fiber network is expanding!

11:29am March 2, 2016

We’re excited to launch this new site, and can’t wait to see how our members engage at a grassroots level to build interest in their zones. While our pilot zone is fully developed and shown in the green portions of the zones map, everything now is up for grabs at this point. So if you’ve joined the crowd, we strongly encourage you to spread the word and get your neighbors, friends, and family on board. If we all pull together we can bring fiber to your neighborhood. Future construction plans may very well be guided by the zones with the greatest interest. We’re working on our end to build the system, and now need you working to spread the word.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter so that you can see the latest and greatest construction updates and other great information.

Great things are in store for LREC members as we introduce the broadband revolution!  Thanks for joining us, and welcome to The Crowd!

George Lehmann, Sir you are exactly what we are looking for in a project campaign champion (educating neighbors on our FTTH project, and how it works.) If we can get roughly 50 members to attend a meeting in Zone 13- Woodland Hills, we will differently have a community meeting. We need to see there is an interest in holding a community meeting. Lake Region will work on getting an email, and a RSVP sent to all our current project backers in Zone 13 – Woodland Hills. You, the members, are driving our fiber expansion project by becoming a backer and getting more neighbors signed up. Watch your email for more details on a Zone 13 - Woodland Hills FTTH community meeting.

After following this for the last couple of years, I've paid my registration fee today. (Zone 13 Woodland Hills) I also think we need more than just 'signs stuck in the ground' to get people in the area to sign up. Getting some signs would be a good place to start. Timothy Carroll - send me an email at gelpilot@gmail.com. Maybe we can get a neighborhood meeting set up to showcase this thing. We would need to find a place like a clubhouse, etc.


Lake Region Technology & Communications - Timothy Carroll

Zone 13 Woodland Hills has had 43% of goal sign ups in less than 6 weeks. With only 134 more sign ups left to goal which is a smaller number than any other zone pending construction. Members of our neighborhood are spreading promotional materials around our small zone actively (around 5 square miles). What you may not be aware of, is that there are over 200 new lots being developed in our zone over the next 18 mos in a 1 mile radius of 71st and 305th st E. (Emerald Falls and The Meadows) If Fiber to Home were present and active when these lots are developed, there would be a huge ability to expand rapidly. Our area is not serviced by any of the current provider and beyond loss of property value, our neighborhood children suffer in their education as most of their curriculum is moving online. Please give zone 13 a long look as a the next construction expansion area in the near term as the return on investment would be high.

Landon Cramer, The zone goal is not the only way we evaluate when and where Lake Region can build fiber. We also evaluate factors that influence overall costs, such as a community's geography and timeline for seeing a positive financial return on investment, among other factors. Please be sure to register, we do have some mainline construction started in Zone 12- Sparrow Hawk.


Lake Region Technology & Communications - Landon Cramer

9:47am July 27, 2017

Landon Cramer

So why is it that Zone 2 - Hulbert is under construction, with 17 more registrations needed, 95% goal reached, and my zone, Zone 12 - Sparrow Hawk, which is at 93%, 14 more registrations needed not under construction? Am I able to get fiber internet in my area, Zone 12 now? Or are we still waiting for construction to begin in my area? I find it odd that my zone is closer to goal and yet is being pushed behind Zone 2.

Alex, we understand the frustration with a slow internet service. Currently, we do not have an expansion zone in your area. However as we see more backers sign up in your area, we will look at expanding and providing services. Please register and encourage all your neighbors to register as well. Once we see there is a demand for our service we will build. We have yard signs and door hangers available at our office locations. You can help spread the work and get your neighbors on board and bring high-speed internet to your area. Social media is also an excellent way to spread the message on how our Crowdfiber campaign works.

I live in the rural areas of Gore, Oklahoma south of braggs on Highway 10. We're practically on the end of Lake Region's electric which is also the services we use. Me and my family have been suffering horrible internet speeds of 7 Mb/s down and 0.80 Mb/s up. It takes me 4-8 hours just to upload a 1 minute video (sometimes it just doesn't go through due to the ping/latency being clogged by the upload) same goes with high resolution photos as well. Can't even do live streaming even with my powerful computer & capture card. m I've had Crosstel come down to test our copper lines and we are limited to what we can get due to being so far away from the DSLAM. They haven't had any plans of upgrading the services to like fiberoptic to make things better. They've also turned off their SDTV services years back and begin doing HDTV which we couldn't get due to the network we are on. Had to go with directv afterwards. I'm paying 63.95 for internet and phone and $100 for Directv. If Lake Region does work on bringing Fiber optic to our area and i do hope. We would be paying for the same price but with Better internet, Phone and TV. It would make me and everyone in our area who use your electric services happy.

HI, I live just outside the zone in Tahlequah, Mike ave to be exact. Personally I think that LREC would do well in this area simply because the best internet service offered is Tahlequah Cable. And honestly they aren't that good. They offer up to 100mbps a second and leave you with about 5mbps for upload. The problem though is that there are so many people that want their service but they don't have the equipment to handle the congestion. So for ex. on Friday nights I'm paying for 100mbps and getting about 8. I am not trying to down on the company but they weren't prepared to take on this many customers. All in all what I am trying to say is that I really hope LREC fiber gets offered here, not to compete with them, but to give everyone some diversity in internet providers. Which would actually help Tahlequah Cable in the long run because the customers who don't choose to switch will have less problems with congestion in the network. Regardless of the zone not reaching my area I have registered for it in hopes of getting it.

Thomas Oare, - We appreciate your patience as we continue to build our fiber-to-the-home network. Currently, our crews are waiting on special material to cross Ft. Gibson Lake, at the mouth of Ranger Creek. The fiber connection of the remaining backers in the Zone 1 – Ft Gibson | Feeder 4, along Highway 80, is taking longer than anticipated due to this lake crossing. We thank you for your understanding in this major project as we continue to build fiber and as always we appreciate your business.

Chuck Spessard, the Sleepy Hollow Zone 7 is one of the larger zones. These zones are designed based on our electric substation feeders. We do not have an agreement with Tahlequah CATV, to not provide services in this area. Sleepy Hollow Zone 7 has an actual number of 148 backers. With a fiber-to-the-home network, you will not see the evening usage peaks, with internet slowdowns as you may currently see on a copper cable system. We understand that technology is evolving fast and our fiber optic system is built for the future, with the capability to increase speeds and bandwidth as needed for the future. If you have any other questions, feel free to give us a call.

I am also in the Sleepy Hollow zone. It appears AT&T just buried fiber optic going down 490 road from 82C. However, AT&T is still not offering fiber optic service. Strange to bury the orange tube but not offer anything to the residents. Just waiting.... and waiting... when?


Lake Region Technology & Communications - Chuck Spessard

12:04pm February 28, 2017

Chuck Spessard

It appears to me that you are putting your fiber in the rural areas first. Are you scared to take on Tahlequah CATV? Do you have an agreement with them to not compete? My zone, Sleepy Hollow, needs quite a few people to sign up before it will even be considered. How many have signed up in Sleepy Hollow zone compared to the zones you are building in now? By the way, don't be scared to take on Tahlequah cable. Their internet service is very inconsistent. It is my understanding that with cable you are at the mercy of people on the line with you. If you have someone who uses Netflix or games all the time who is before you then your speeds are affected by what they are doing. That must be the case for my service. It is also my understanding that this is not the case with fiber optic. However, new technology is coming out everyday. If you finally get to my zone five years from now are you not worried by then you will be obsolete?

Crowd Fiber should make Okay,OK a zone on the Lake Region Fiber campaign. Everybody gets the card pamphlets in the mail to sign up for it but it's considered a remote zone. AT&T is the only internet provider in the area and it's DSL. They aren't allowing new customers to sign up neither. So lake region would have the whole town of Okay. Who wouldn't rather have 50mb for the same price compared to the 6mb's AT&T provides?

First... Thank you for doing this! Satellite internet is too slow and can be interrupted by weather! Verizon data is spotty and you lose connection easily, although voice and texting is better out here than AT&T. I thought utility pole easement already exists, 15 feet either side. QUESTIONS: Can the fiber to the house be buried between the pole and the house? Will the old coax cable lines on the utility poles be removed? There is a tangled mess hanging under some utility poles. Where are you advertising this? First time I saw it was today in the Oklahoma Living magazine. Post Card option is a GOOD IDEA... but is it being used? I've never received a post card. Thank you!

Why is the Okay area not included in this build out plan? There a lot of LREC customers in this area. Several of us would like an alternative to ATT DSL service or satellite. Also, ATT is very reluctant to or won't provide new DSL service to the Okay area. I know of people who have been denied ATT DSL service.

I signed up, but you know what would be helpful? If the email included the address to send the check and/or easement statement. Am I missing it on the site somewhere? Please clarify, and provide the information in an easily accessible location. Thanks.

Aaron Anderson -Thank you for your interest in our fiber optic services. We would like you to join the campaign and become a backer on our fiber expansion website. The more backers we have signed up in the Peggs area will help guide our construction plans. We will consider building fiber in your area if we have several backers in your area. Our internet packages offer large monthly data caps, up to 300 GB per month. We have to limit data usage to help control cost, and keep our subscribers monthly bills down.

I don't even see Peggs listed as a zone. Why don't you offer no data cap like Boltfiber from Northest Electric Coop?

We're just barely cut out of the proposed Hulbert zone. Our neighbor and us would definitely get. Also our family on 390 RD is also just out of the Hulbert zone but they would get as well, 2 more homes.

We're interested in fiber internet. After completing the form it said I had selected HD TV. Several people in our area also would like fiber internet. We had LREC fiber optic at our previous residence, we built in a new area that is not currently serviced...we miss it!
