Construction of the fiber route began last fall. The Co-op has contracted West Union Trenching and R & S Fiber Optic Services for this project, and you will notice them in your neighborhood installing fiber and connecting cable.
CONSTRUCTION IS IN THREE STAGES
- Installation of cable (building the network in your neighborhood) and installing drops (bringing the fiber network to your home) has required and will continue to require West Union Trenching and/or AC Skyways staff to be in your yard and attaching a small fiber-optic connection box, roughly the size of a shoebox, to your house or business. This connection box is similar to the equipment necessary for a landline telephone connection and will start in late July.
- As soon as the cable is installed, R & S Fiber Optic Service splicing crews will follow to connect the cable in preparation for the service activation.
- *Service activation is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2021. The activation time is when the service is connected, and you can start using fiber to your home internet.
Service activation is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2021. If you are on our fiber route and would like to be added to our waiting list to have this service connected, please call 800-864-1611 Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., email email@example.com, or
