As the Oklahoma Broadband Office decides how and where to spend $558,209,835 in federal funding, it is pushing ahead with information-gathering meetings across the state, all in the name of creating the Oklahoma Broadband plan.
The office’s goal is to eventually provide high-speed internet to 95% of the state’s population and do so by June of 2028.
One of those meetings was held this week in Enid as the Enid News and Eagle reported.
