With this grant, Allegiance Communications plans to deploy broadband technology to an estimated 12,700 households and 230 businesses in a four-state region: Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

It will be the first time wireline broadband service faster than dial-up is offered in most of the affected communities. Allegiance also plans to upgrade communications for public safety organizations to improve storm warning systems and first responder efforts.
