OAKDALE, La., March 16, 2023 — Fastwyre Broadband, a cutting-edge fiber provider with reliable and affordable services across America, today announced it will begin providing a robust fiber-optic broadband network to residents and businesses in Oakdale, La. Fastwyre is committed to expanding in Louisiana as it recently launched a successful fiber-optic network in Westlake and plans to bring service to the southwest Louisiana communities of DeRidder and Leesville in the coming weeks.

Fastwyre’s state-of-the-art network features a fiber-to-the-premises infrastructure enhancement that delivers high-speed internet to help customers meet their data transmission, online video conferencing, e-commerce, virtual learning, entertainment and telehealth needs.
