KanOkla Networks will soon begin construction on a buried fiber-optic network in Wellington. This will bring high capacity, synchronous gig speed service to the area.

Staking is currently underway for Phase I in the business districts along Hwy 160, Hwy 81, and downtown Washington Avenue with some residential homes that fall into those boundaries.

KanOkla hired the engineering firm, RVW, to begin mapping/staking the route on July 6, and RVW and KanOkla trucks will continue to be seen in the alleys where physical connection to buildings is required.

KanOkla has purchased the former Huegel Cleaners building downtown to serve as the central wire center that will serve the community, and the remodeling will begin soon.

As a local service provider and neighbor serving the south half of Sumner County, KanOkla is excited to offer this future-ready technology to enable further economic impact, growth, and available options for all broadband needs.

KanOkla’s IT Services team has expanded to a team of five, offering all IT needs in the 2-state region.

Phase II staking will begin after the completion of Phase I and will encompass the rest of the community of Wellington by order of neighborhood demand. If you would like to learn more, stay informed, or sign up, please visit KanOkla’s fiber landing page.
