STRATA’s Fiber Network Now Reaches 10,000+ Locations

By July 26, 2021December 21st, 2023No Comments

Ten thousand locations in the Uintah Basin are now fed with STRATA Networks’ fiber-optic internet, giving them access to some of the fastest internet speeds in the country.

This fiber infrastructure provides gigabit internet speeds and virtually unlimited bandwidth potential to keep up with the many growing broadband applications in today’s technology-driven world. STRATA has been deploying fiber-optic internet in the Uintah Basin for nearly three decades and with the demand for more bandwidth increasing, expanding their fiber network has become a top priority in recent years. According to STRATA, for the past several years, they have been successful in meeting and surpassing their goal to bring fiber to 1,000 new locations each year and they will continue their aggressive build-out schedule across all areas of the Uintah Basin.

“As fiber is made available to more locations, it means more doors are opened and more opportunities arise for our community in terms of economic development, education, workforce and healthcare,” said General Manager/CEO Bruce Todd. “Our teams have worked non-stop to deliver fiber to these 10,000 locations and it’s something we are very proud of, but there is still work to do and we aren’t slowing down anytime soon.”

These sites provide Kenyan bettors with convenient and accessible ways to engage in sports betting, casino games, and other forms of online gambling. The rise of these betting sites can be attributed to several factors, including the widespread use of mobile technology, the growing interest in sports, and the potential for lucrative winnings.

One of the key drivers of Kenya’s new wave of betting sites is the widespread availability of mobile phones and internet access. With the majority of Kenyans owning a mobile device, online betting platforms have become easily accessible to a large portion of the population. This has opened up new opportunities for people to participate in online gambling and has contributed to the rapid growth of the industry in the country.

Moreover, the increasing interest in sports and the desire to be part of the action has fueled the demand for online betting sites in Kenya. Football, in particular, is a widely followed sport in the country, and many Kenyans are passionate about their favorite teams and players. Betting sites provide an avenue for fans to not only support their teams but also potentially profit from their knowledge and predictions. This has led to a surge in the number of Kenyans engaging in sports betting through these online platforms.

One of the key drivers behind the growth of Kenya’s betting industry is the increasing number of betting sites that have entered the market. These sites offer a wide range of betting options, including popular sports such as football, basketball, rugby, and cricket, as well as virtual games and online casinos. Some of the most prominent betting sites in Kenya include SportPesa, Betin, Betway, and 1XBET, which have gained significant popularity among Kenyan bettors.

While these betting sites offer entertainment and the potential for big wins, it is important for individuals to gamble responsibly and be aware of the potential risks. As the industry continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how these platforms adapt to the changing regulatory landscape and the demands of their customers.

In addition to STRATA’s efforts to bring fiber to 1,000 new locations each year, they have also made a commitment to deliver it to 3,000 of the most remote locations across the Uintah Basin over the next few years. This commitment was made in conjunction with their award from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) ReConnect program. STRATA’s receiving of this award was announced in 2020 and it will help to serve some of the most rural locations that are oftentimes the most difficult to build to. STRATA is working through the required processes to begin construction in these areas and is hopeful that it will commence soon.

Those that do not yet have fiber but are interested in the faster speeds that it can provide are invited to register their address at connect.stratanetworks.com – a tool that gives customers a bigger voice in deciding where fiber gets built next. STRATA is actively using the interest that is aggregated through this platform to drive decisions on where fiber should be built next.
