OKLAHOMA CITY– Dobson Fiber, a fiber internet provider and iCON Infrastructure are pleased to announce the closing of the strategic partnership signed on February 14, 2022.

iCON Infrastructure Partners will support Dobson Fiber’s $700 million fiber deployment plan across Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas.  The Dobson Family will retain significant ownership of the company and together with iCON V, will continue to support Dobson Fiber's management team and dedicated workforce with the fiber deployment plan.

iCON V’s investment supports Dobson Fiber’s mission to provide fast, reliable and local fiber-based internet services to underserved residential and business communities with its own 5,000+ route mile fiber optic network that spans across Oklahoma and parts of Arkansas and Texas. 

Dobson currently offers residential fiber internet services in nine Oklahoma communities and three towns in Arkansas.  Dobson Fiber recently announced twelve more fiber network commitments across Oklahoma and Arkansas with additional community commitments announcing soon.

Both companies cited that the deal will help bring broadband to those communities where options had been limited.

“Our top priorities are to develop the best possible technology solutions that are not only applicable today, but can be ready to handle data needs in the future,” said Francisco Maella, CEO of Dobson Fiber. “Our employees are fully committed to this mission.  With the support of iCON Infrastructure, we will accomplish connecting underserved communities who need better access now.”

Rory Hunter, Partner at iCON Infrastructure, agreed.

“We are excited to see the growth and deployment of much needed fiber-based connectivity services to underserved markets in this region and believe Dobson is one of the best in the industry to deliver these services,” he said. “We have visited local communities including Enid, Weatherford and Waurika where Dobson has deployed fiber optics and know how much of a difference fast and reliable fiber internet services can make to people in these communities.”
