The Oklahoma Office of State Finance deployed more than 820 miles of new fiber through June 2013, as well as upgraded or leased an additional 1,300 miles. This infrastructure comprises part of the Oklahoma Community Anchor Network (OCAN), a collaborative effort to extend and complete an existing state network, OneNet, to bring affordable broadband service to community anchor institutions in rural communities across the state.

OCAN plans to build or upgrade approximately 2,220 miles of new and existing fiber, nearly doubling the OneNet network, and providing service to 59 Oklahoma counties, including some of the most economically distressed areas in the northwestern and southeastern portions of the state. Once completed, the network will improve broadband service at education, public safety, and healthcare institutions in the region, including Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Western Oklahoma State College, Lawton Indian Hospital’s Indian Health Services Unit, and the state’s Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training locations.
