A faster, more reliable and more affordable internet is coming to Yukon, Okla.
Bluepeak announced today a franchise agreement with the city of Yukon to build a high-speed fiber network that will meet the growing needs of the community today and in the future. The roughly $10 million expansion effort will bring Bluepeak service to more than 10,000 residences and businesses in Yukon.
“The investment we’re making to build our fiber network here is due in no small part to our great partnership with the city of Yukon,” said Rich Fish, Bluepeak’s CEO. “We’re confident our fiber-to-the-home internet service will enable economic development and meet the ever-growing connectivity needs of the Yukon community.”
According to broadbandnow.com, Oklahoma ranks 46th in the nation in internet coverage, speed and availability. Moreover, A Kansas City Federal Reserve study estimated 30 percent of Oklahomans have access to fewer than two wired internet providers. Furthermore, research from a 2020 report by Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond on “Bringing Broadband to Rural America” determined that broadband access and adoption is linked to increased job and population growth, higher rates of new business formation and home values, and lower unemployment rates.
“We learned during the pandemic the importance of families having high-speed internet access to education, telehealth, commerce and other services necessary to our daily lives,” said Rep. Rhonda Baker, R-Yukon. “I’m excited to welcome Bluepeak to Yukon and look forward to all they have to offer our residents.”
With Bluepeak service, customers get faster speed, equal upload and download speeds, and whole-home WiFi. Bluepeak features transparent, all-in pricing, where the price on the website is the price on the bill, with a minimum speed tier of 1 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) internet service for just $50 per month. Homes can get up to 5 Gbps and businesses up to 10 Gbps and beyond. Each internet speed package includes eero Secure, which protects devices from online threats, ads and allows for customized content filtering. Bluepeak’s network provides faster speeds, better connectivity and the bandwidth to connect more devices for internet, streaming, gaming and more.
Bluepeak already dramatically improves internet options for residents in other Oklahoma communities with service available in Stillwater, Enid, Perry and many more. In addition to this expansion in Oklahoma, Bluepeak is significantly expanding into other announced markets in Wyoming, South Dakota, and North Dakota.
