OKLAHOMA CITY – Dobson Fiber announces another multi-million dollar expansion of its fiber internet offering in Poteau, Okla. today. Dobson broke ground with members of the City of Poteau, Poteau Chamber of Commerce, and local business leaders.
“We have been serving Oklahomans since 1936 and are excited to bring the Poteau community 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 Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Construction of the network 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.
