Is Sallisaw the first city in the United States to operate a fiber telecommunications system like this?
No. In the last several years many cities throughout the United States, some larger and some smaller than Sallisaw, have either constructed a hybrid fiber coax system (HFC) or a fiber to the home system (FTTH). The Fiber to the Home Council reports that over 128 communities have deployed FTTH services with active customers. These communities have had excellent success with their systems, most even exceeding their initial service penetration estimates.
