December 2019 Fiber Construction Update


It’s the holiday season and our mascot Butch is full of holiday cheer, enjoying the parades and festivities in the communities we serve. As we say goodbye to 2019 and welcome in 2020, we remain focused on continuing our fiber project and expanding our Internet service area. Construction is ongoing for the remaining areas in Phase 1 as well as the first 100 miles of Phase 2.

Also, we’ve awarded the contract for the second 220 miles of Phase 2 and expect construction to get underway in early 2020. Below is a table that summarizes all current and planned construction either ongoing or starting in the next six months:
