Construction Starting Soon
Step 1: Locating Existing Utilities
The construction process begins with the identification of existing underground utilities. Utility locating firms will be painting lines and placing small flags to mark current underground facilities. Some of these markings may be placed in your yard in the area near the road known as the right-of-way or easement.
Please do not remove the flags as it is state law they remain in place during construction. The paint is water based and will fade away, and all flags will be removed at the completion of construction.
Once existing utilities are marked, our crews will arrive to install underground conduit and access vaults. The conduit serves as a path for the fiber-optic cable and is placed underground in the utility right-of-way. Access vaults are also placed in the right-of-way and are installed flush to the ground.
We promise to respect your property and will do our best to minimize disruption. Our crews work only during daylight hours, and any sod that is removed during the process will be replaced (we recommend that you water it regularly so that it grows back successfully.)
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we build a new, state-of-the-art fiber-optic internet network for your neighborhood. If you have any issues or comments about the construction process, please share them with us here.

The Internet is the heartbeat of the modern home and we’ve come to rely on its ability to connect us to work, education, entertainment, and shopping through multiple devices used at one time. A fiber-optic network delivers the fastest, most reliable symmetrical speeds to ensure your home has the fastest service it needs.
Symmetrical speeds are when upload and download speeds are equal. Fiber is the only residential technology that can offer full symmetrical speeds. When upload equals download speed, video calls work better, video games play faster, and your photos upload in an instant.
