OzarksGo in Northwest Arkansas, a fiber-optic telecommunications subsidiary of Ozarks Electric Cooperative, has officially connected its 30,000th subscriber.
The company awarded the 30,000th subscriber, Dorothy Harris of Fayetteville, with a new television to watch with her new internet and television service. Harris was reportedly excited to get the TV set up with the help of the installers, and to go through her new cooler full of OzarksGo gifts.
OzarksGo connected its first customer in 2017 in west Springdale and has since expanded across Northwest Arkansas and Northeast Oklahoma.
“I want to thank all of our customers and employees for helping us reach this milestone,” said Steve Bandy, general manager of OzarksGo. “Building a state-of-the-art fiber network from scratch is not an easy task, but we believe high-speed internet access is a critical service in the 21st century, whether you live in an urban area or a rural part of the county.”
OzarksGo is a locally-owned telecommunications subsidiary of Ozarks Electric Cooperative offering all-fiber gigabit Internet, HDTV and telephone services to the cooperative members and commercial customers in Northwest Arkansas and Northeast Oklahoma. The recently announced Diamond State Networks will be uniting the fiber-optic networks of electric cooperatives throughout Arkansas to further improve the growth of high-speed connections throughout the state.
