Bridging the Technology Gap between Urban & Rural America

Rural Broadband Services Corporation Inc. d.b.a. RBSC Oklahoma LLC has been selected by the FCC to be a recipient of one of the largest sums of money provided through the FCC Rural Broadband Experiment Fund.

This funding will allow RBSC to provide affordable Gigabit broadband service to numerous residents, businesses and anchor institutions that reside within a five county area of Northeastern Oklahoma. Institutions like hospitals, universities, libraries, schools, law enforcement and health clinics as well as the Cherokee Nation will finally have access to the high-speed Internet services that they need.

RBSC is harnessing the full power of the Internet to provide faster and more widely available broadband access to Northeastern Oklahoma by responding to the current and future needs of the communities in these areas so local businesses can also have a global impact. In addition, the pricing structure is intended to make high speed, Gigabit, broadband services available to small business, low income residents and students.

The benefits of communication and data transfer through high speed, broadband technology reach well beyond the rural community. It encourages competitive opportunities to promote education, entrepreneurship and innovation.

This funding supports an aggressive plan to provide rural Oklahoma with the same, high-quality, highspeed service that urban areas have access to. BSC’s innovative business model of wired and wireless fiber optic networks provide shared infrastructure networks that effectively bridge the technology gap between urban and rural America.

RBSC’s Rapid Deployment Technology utilizes FCC wireless spectrum licenses, 100% fiber optic gigabit networks and shared infrastructure for broadband and smart grid applications for rural America. RBSC systems provide low cost, high speed (up to 10Gbps), high-capacity, point-to-point, broadband services (wired and wireless), including voice, data and video services to commercial and residential customers in rural America.
