OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA. – February 1, 2021 – Dobson Technologies, a leading provider of high-speed, fiber-optic networks, announced today that it has changed its name to Dobson Fiber. The name change and branding initiative reflects the focus and growth of the organization in the coming years.
Changes in business and consumer needs over the last year pushed rebranding efforts into the foreground. While fiber technology has lived at the core of Dobson’s operations for many years, accelerated adoption of cloud-based business operations in 2020 heightened the need for fiber-enabled connectivity.
Since its 1936 humble beginnings in Cheyenne, Oklahoma, the Dobson companies have continued to blaze a trail in the telecommunication’s industry. Dobson’s name represents the company’s focus moving forward. Fiber.
“Our focus is on building the most reliable and fastest fiber-optic network throughout the areas we serve,” said Francisco Maella, CEO of Dobson Fiber. “Our name needs to represent our mission to our customers and partners, and that is to continue to grow and support our state-of-the-art fiber networks.”
With Dobson’s investment in building fiber-optic networks, the number of addressable business buildings eligible for fiber-based voice and data services has grown from around 15,000 to approximately 32,000 in 2020 alone. This aggressive expansion illustrates Dobson’s commitment to bringing high-speed fiber to businesses who have been historically served from legacy cable or copper infrastructures, which typically involve slow data transmission.
The current pandemic has dramatically affected everyone’s work life. As a result, there has been a dramatic increase in demand for more reliable bandwidth, whether your business resides in a rural or metro area. This affirmed a belief that Dobson companies have held for many years: no matter where you choose to live and work, the latest technology should be widely available.
Dobson Fiber owns and operates a 4,000+ mile regional fiber optic network and provides connectivity services including high-speed internet, data and cloud connectivity, and voice over internet telephone solutions. Dobson Fiber is an Oklahoma-based and privately-owned telecommunication’s company. To learn more visit dobson.net.
