What to expect:
We have been hard at work to ensure everyone knows that we are bringing your community fiber optic internet! More importantly, we are bringing speeds up to 1,000 Mbps! This means that you will have an opportunity to get internet that could be 1000x faster than what you see today (and probably save you money at the same time)!
To prepare Sturgeon County for their digital future, new fiber-optic infrastructure is deeply important. To ensure this massive upgrade lasts for generation’s to come, we will burry this infrastructure! Unfortunately, even in the best weather conditions, installing new underground infrastructure is hard and dangerous work, here is what you need to know about the project.
Progress so Far
Our project was only recently announced, but we’re almost ready to build! Our design is done, and you can view the map of our proposed routes HERE. We hope to start construction soon (and perhaps, it’s already started by the time you ready this!)
It Can Get Messy
Spring construction can be difficult as the ground is still wet and is prone to creating plenty of mud. Because we are building buried infrastructure under/in wet ground, progress on our new construction will require a bit of a mess to complete properly. Follow our Facebook page to keep yourself updated as we push through this spring to connect you sooner!
Before we begin constructing in your area you will see flags begin to pop up all around the area. These flags are incredibly important as it tells the construction crew where important infrastructure, like gas and electric, is located. If you see these flags, please ensure that you do not touch or remove them from the ground. If a crew is unable to see a flag or the utilities below it could cause serious damage to your utilities or cause harm to the crew! If you would like to let us know about private utilities on your property where we will be building, please call our main line and let our team know. For more information on locates, visit UtilitySafety.ca.
We are building underground construction, which means we dig holes and small trenches for the fiber lines to run down! Although we deploy directional drills and vibratory plowing equipment that reduces the amount of soil turned, we still create a small mess. But fear not, we always try our best to remediate anything effected by our work and ensure that it will return to its healthiest form in suitable time.
Our team will often wait for the soil can properly settle. At that point, we set the earth to final grade and plant new seed for your lawn to regrow to its previous health! It is a small price we need to pay to keep construction moving so we can continue to connect homes and businesses as fast as possible!
