(SHAWNEE, Okla.) – Sept. 19, 2022 – Bluepeak has begun connecting its first customers in Shawnee to officially launch its internet service in the Oklahoma community. The milestone follows a
previously announced investment of $12 million to bring Bluepeak’s high-speed fiber network to
roughly 12,000 homes and businesses in Shawnee.
“We’re thrilled to be launching our fiber-to-the-home internet to serve this great community,” said
Rich Fish, Bluepeak’s CEO. “We have a tremendous partnership with the city officials here that’s
allowed us to bring fast, affordable, reliable internet to Shawnee.”
Shawnee residents in the area east of Harrison Street and north of Janeway Place will be the first
to have service available to them, with construction moving south after that. Those interested can

Before Bluepeak, high-speed internet was a challenge for many in Shawnee and across the Sooner
- Oklahoma ranks 46th in the nation in internet coverage, speed and availability, according to broadbandnow.com.
- A Kansas City Federal Reserve study estimated 30 percent of Oklahomans have access to fewer than two wired internet providers.
- An April 2020 survey by the Oklahoma Education Department showed that nearly one in four students did not have a home internet connection.
Bluepeak dramatically improves the options for residents in Oklahoma by providing fast, reliable,
affordable internet to communities like Perry, Enid, Altus, Bartlesville, Stillwater, Blackwell and
Tonkawa, with construction underway in Lawton, Elk City, Clinton and more. In addition to this expansion in Oklahoma, Bluepeak is dramatically expanding into other announced markets in Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Missouri.
Bluepeak features all-in pricing, where the price on the website is the price on the bill, with a minimum speed tier of one gigabit-per-second (Gbps) internet service at just $50 per month. With
Bluepeak service, local residences and businesses get faster speed, equal upload and download
speeds, and eero Secure, which provides whole-home WiFi and protects devices from online
threats, ads and allows for customized content filtering.
