Indeed... not much fiber in Mulvane, AFAIK, but I believe
that some of the runs from WCHTKS to OKCYOK probably come
close.  Fiber from Kansas City to Dallas usually goes
through Wichita.

Hmmmm.... I just ran a Mulvane NPA/NXX, and the CLLI
indicates that Mulvane is a WCHTKS CO.  Perhaps there is
some local fiber, although I'd think that it's too fast
for Mulvane speed limits. ;-)

Watch out for speed traps if you ever have the misfortune
of driving through^W^W^W^W opportunity to visit Mulvane...
