Looks like Lawton, Fort Sill will be getting a new internet and cable company sometime in 2022.
From what we're hearing it could be as early as June/July of next year. At this time the City of Lawton and community leaders are addressing the current city ordinances as they relate to internet/television providers and working on the franchise agreement with the new company. If all goes well we could have an all-new provider in 2022. Hopefully, the process goes smoothly and there are no issues or set backs going forward.
So who is this new company that's coming to town? The name of the company is called Bluepeak.
You can get more information about them at the official website and on their Facebook page. Once all the details are ironed out Bluepeak will begin the process of laying fiber optic cable both in-ground and above. It's estimated that they'll be investing over 30 million dollars in upgrades and infrastructure around Lawton, Fort Sill to support the new service. Most if not all of Lawton will have access to fiber-optic internet!

From what it looks like when they come to Lawton they'll also expand into Duncan and Chickasha as well. There's some great news to start 2022 off with!
