Soft Launch on RANA
We have achieved another milestone in our efforts to bring world-class Internet to your doorstep. Starting this week, BARC Connects is officially in “beta mode” on the RANA network. A small number of customers with an existing fiber drop from RANA have graciously volunteered to be beta testers of our service over the next month. If you have a RANA drop and wish to participate in our beta test program, please let us know right away by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We are one step closer to launch!
Notice to Proceed Issued
Late last week, we issued the formal “Notice to Proceed” to S&N Communications, our fiber construction contractor. Construction on our fiber network will officially begin on October 9, 2017, a few weeks behind the original schedule. The core fiber ring will be the first order of business, which is necessary for us to deliver consistently reliable service. This will take approximately 8 weeks, then laterals and service drops will be next. We will soon be underway!
