PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

The City of Pittsburg approved a franchise and network services agreement that enables Craw-Kan Telephone to move forward with a multiphase telecommunications project that will ultimately bring fully buried fiber optic broadband connections to businesses and residences in the city limits. Construction has begun and soon Craw-Kan will be offering speed packages up to ONE GIGABIT (1000 Mbps) identical to the Google Fiber project in cities such as Kansas City, Atlanta, Austin and Nashville.

“Residential, business, and enterprise customers in Pittsburg will have affordable access to the same level of service previously only offered in large metropolitan areas. This brings the city of Pittsburg to the cutting edge of technology offerings for its citizens and makes it even more attractive to new or relocating businesses.” - Craig Wilbert, General Manager, Craw-Kan Telephone

Main Line construction is expected to take 90 days, with the first customers being connected late in 2015 and passing nearly 1500 residences and businesses in 2016. Other services offered will include: voice, high definition video, and mobile 4G LTE. Craw-Kan also offers many other technology related services to businesses and residences including IT management, security systems, computer repair, website hosting and design services, and more. More than just a telephone company, Craw-Kan is your community technology partner.
