Proposed Project Timeline


Winter 2021

Bringing fiber to a community is a big undertaking. Before we can begin construction, we need to determine how many households are interested.

This helps determine if it is financially viable to build fiber in a particular area.


Summer 2021

Precision boring and plowing machines will install fiber optic cables underground from our central office to a box outside your home.

Construction takes place with minimal disturbance to your yard.

Connecting the Fiber

Fall 2021

A fiber optic cable is run from outside your home to an optical network terminal (ONT) that our technicians will mount inside your home.

This equipment is what provides your home with internet, Digital TV, and phone service.
