FIBER IS THE NAME OF THE GAME.
As GBT continues to provide the best Internet and Communication services to residents and businesses in our area, GBT is very excited to announce the expansion of Fiber services in 2022 to the communities of St. John and Larned, as well as bringing Fiber to the rural customers in the Garfield, Burdett, and Bison exchanges. The 2022 rural exchange Fiber builds will begin in Garfield this summer, followed by Burdett, and finishing in Bison.
St. John – Bringing an even BETTER user experience.
GBT has been providing communication services to the community of St. John since 2008. GBT General Manager Beau Rebel stated, “With the continued growth and support GBT has seen in the community and the need for even faster Internet services than what we provide today, it was an easy decision to invest and upgrade our current infrastructure to a fully Fiber network within the entire city limits of St. John. We hope the community is excited to have access to Fiber services and understands the positive economic impacts Fiber can have with this upgrade.” GBT plans to start converting St. John customers to Fiber in the Summer of 2022.

Larned – Filling a Fiber need.
In Larned, GBT brought Fiber communication services to many of the businesses in 2018. The businesses that switched to GBT’s Fiber services have consistently voiced praise about GBT’s reliability, price, and the level of customer service they have received compared to what they had experienced from their previous communication provider. GBT General Manager commented, “As business customers have become familiar to GBT’s service, now the biggest question we get ‘is when can I get GBT service at my house?’ With GBT’s commitment to helping the Golden Belt area thrive and ensure residents and businesses have access to world-class communication services and not fall behind from a connectivity standpoint, it only makes sense that GBT expands our Fiber services to residents of Larned so they can enjoy what many of our GBT customers have become accustomed to in the last 10 to 15 years.” GBT will begin deploying Fiber in phases to the community of Larned, with 2 phases constructed in late Fall of 2022.

What is the big deal about Fiber?
In the technology world, Fiber is still king, and if you’re not expanding communication services by deploying Fiber, you’re most likely falling behind. Now some might ask about 5G, but what many don’t understand is 5G CAN’T WORK WITHOUT FIBER. Secondly, when GBT brings Fiber to a home or business, you are essentially getting 10G-like technology at your door! Fiber gives GBT’s customers a future-proof network that can provide the fastest speeds with the best reliability in the world!
