Across rural America, the digital divide is closing, one fiber mile at a time

The broadband movement is here – and Petit Jean Fiber is not leaving anyone behind

Many small towns and farming communities across America and here in Arkansas have, until now, lacked access to reliable internet service. That is all changing thanks to our electric cooperatives, who are bringing world-class fiber-to-the-home service to rural communities.

Construction of fiber networks make it possible to deliver reliable broadband internet service that can transform the lives and livelihoods of our members, just like electricity did in the 1930s and ’40s.

With Petit Jean Fiber, our residents and businesses have access to the same tools and resources as urban areas. Better remote employment opportunities, consistent distance education, convenient telemedicine, and more business prospects are just a few of the benefits.

Right now, crews are working on mainline fiber construction as we gear toward connecting our first customers later this year. Over the course of this project, Petit Jean Electric Cooperative and its fiber subsidiary, Petit Jean Fiber, will provide service for over 14,000 Arkansans in the span of six years. We won’t stop until 100% of our membership has access.

We are also excited to share that our full commercial website will launch this fall at www.petitjeanfiber.com. We are proud to provide our members with reliable high-speed internet and amazing customer service. This finished website will allow members to place their service orders with Petit Jean Fiber as zones open and pay your bill automatically online.

You can still visit www.petitjeanfiber.com now and pre-register to let us know you are interested. We would love for you to be a part of closing the digital divide in Arkansas.
