Following are the latest updates on our rural Clearwater fiber expansion project.

95th St. South & 199th St. West (Harvest Valley Neighborhood):
Mainline construction and splicing are complete. Crews will begin customer installations soon. We anticipate this area to be complete this fall.

71st St. South & 263rd St. West:
Mainline construction and splicing are complete. Crews are nearly finished burying service lines to homes and businesses, and installations will begin in September. We anticipate this area to be complete this fall.

71st St. South and 215th St. West:
Mainline construction is nearly complete. Beginning in September, our construction partners will bury service lines to homes and businesses. Then, SKT technicians will begin mounting an Optical Network Terminal (ONT) box for those who have approved installation.

What does all of this mean for you? That means new symmetrical internet speeds – equal download and upload speeds – up to 1 Gbps or 1,000 Mbps will be available soon.

That’s more than 50 times faster download and a thousand times faster upload than currently available. Faster download creates a better experience for all your online activities, including streaming TV, gaming, working from home, taking online classes, and more. Activities such as gaming, working from home, and uploading large files require faster upload speeds.

This project reflects our commitment to improving connectivity to rural Kansans, providing the most reliable network with internet options at the best value.

You may continue to see our crews in your area as new customers sign up for service. If you have questions, contact us online, by phone at 888.758.8976 or text 620.584.5555, M-F 8a-5p.
