At ARK-O, we give you access to the services offered in larger cities, but with the customer service of a smaller, local company. We live and work in rural Mid-America, so we understand your communications needs because they’re the same as our own.

We provide service to ten local exchanges in Southwest Missouri, Northwest Arkansas, and Northeast Oklahoma.

Take advantage of the most dependable communications device available by maintaining a corded land-line service. Our land-line service offers you:


ARK-O lets you talk on the phone and surf the Internet all at the same time.

Our Broadband service means you’ll experience the Internet at high speed. No more waiting for pages to load. No more dropped connections while playing online games, downloading large documents, or sharing files.

ARK-O provides Broadband Internet service to our telephone customers. A technician will check the line and determine what speed is available to the customer depending on the distance from the ARK-O Central Office.

VDSL is available upon request, but is subject to location availability.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your computer is Broadband and High-Speed ready. Any customer purchasing Broadband only will be required to purchase a modem and filters. ARK-O has modem/router combinations available for purchase. Some modem types may not be compatible with the Broadband system. ARK-O CANNOT come into your home to run wiring, install your modem, or otherwise assist you in setting up your Broadband service. ARK-O cannot guarantee a reliable signal when CAT5 cable is not in use.

There is a $25 activation fee.

All applications must be printed out, filled out and sent by email or fax to: or 417-776-1234.
