OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A $15.3 million federal loan has been approved to help expand broadband in a rural portion of Oklahoma.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture loan is to Southern Plains Cable, LLC to build a fiber-optic broadband network in a 55-square-mile area that includes Anadarko, Verden and Chickasha.
