Craw-Kan Expanding Service In Bourbon County

Craw-Kan Telephone Cooperative, Girard, is extending its’  “Fiber to the Home” network into the city limits of Fort Scott.

“We will be offering ultra-fast fiber optic internet up to 1 gigabit, high definition cable TV services, and phone service to residences and businesses,” said Zach Adams, Manager of Marketing and Customer Service of Craw-Kan Telephone Cooperative.

“We will be providing better, faster, more reliable services using the latest technology at extremely competitive prices,” Adams said. “We will not require residential contracts and do not charge equipment rental fees or installation fees on new customers.”

Internet pricing starts at $50 per month and cable TV packages as low as $39 per month, Adams said.
For current pricing and packages see the business website www.ckt.net

“We are already hooking up customers in select areas and taking orders in Country Club Hills and along Indian Road and West 23rd Street,” Adam said. “Keep an eye on your mailbox for notification of availability in your area!”

Craw-Kan is hoping to expand its customer base and the size of its network footprint, he said.

The current plan is to finish the main trunk line loop through the city and begin building in some neighborhoods along the way.

“Later this year we plan to begin building in the historic downtown district and industrial parks,” Adams said. “Next year we plan to announce a larger scale expansion that will reach a large number of residents.”

  ” We have served a large portion of rural Bourbon county for a long time,” Adams said. ” This is an extension into the city limits.”

The fiber is 100 percent buried, so there is no weather interference, Adams said. ” It is optic (light) rather than electrical so there is no electrical interference. It is a dedicated link, so no sharing with other users.  It provides the most bandwidth available into the home – no speed restrictions based on distance.  It is low maintenance and highly reliable – nearly 99.95% uptime. “
