OKLAHOMA CITY — August 3, 2022 – Dobson Fiber announces another multi-million dollar expansion of its fiber internet offering in Fort Smith and Barling, Ark. today. Dobson broke ground with city representatives and Chamber of Commerce.
“We have been in the telecommunications business since 1936 and are excited to bring the Fort Smith area the best fiber network and fastest residential speeds offered in the United States. We will be deploying a network that has been designed to offer up to 10 gigabits per second to the residents we serve here,” said Francisco Maella, CEO at Dobson Fiber. “Our commitment to launching innovative products and the latest technology is unwavering to the businesses and residents we serve.”
“We’ve seen exceptional customer adoption this year and we are thrilled to further our footprint in more markets across Northwest Arkansas. We have put together a plan to expand our fiber network to reach the vast majority of the homes and businesses here,” said Jim Horsburgh, Chief Strategy Officer for Dobson Fiber.
Construction of the network will take time to build and will be completed in geographic zones. Once each zone is nearing completion, residents will be notified when they can begin to sign up for service.
