Stop the Buffering: Fiber Internet is Coming to Durant
Invitations are going out now. Locals are encouraged to visit www.stopthebuffering.com.
Cherokee’s Fiber Now connects fiber to the home (FTTH) and can transmit data as fast as 1 gigabit per second. This connection is 20 times faster than the national average for broadband and even faster than what is currently available to homes locally.
Locals and business owners can go online to request Fiber Now in their area by visiting www.stopthebuffering.com. This website is used by Cherokee to determine which areas have the most interest. This month, the website had over 1,500 unique visits.
“It’s exciting to bring the most modern, fastest tech to southeast Oklahoma,” says Cherokee VP of operations Sam Sanchez. “Fiber takes the limits off homes and business looking to grow families and jobs here."
Fiber Internet has gained popularity in recent months with names like Google Fiber and Verizon FiOS. Cherokee’s Fiber Now is the first local service to connect directly to the home, enabling a faster connection, and will carry unlimited data, HDTV and voice calling.
For information about how you can bring Fiber Internet to your neighborhood, visit www.stopthebuffering.com or call Cherokee Communications at 580-434-5375.
Family-owned Cherokee Communications was founded as Cherokee Telephone Company in 1956. Since connecting the first modern telephone network in Calera, Cherokee has expanded to offer Internet, digital voice and television service.
