Our team has been preparing 2022 construction season. In addition to completing some projects, we will also be breaking ground in several new areas.

Construction season is in full swing, and crews are working hard to complete streets! We were off to a slow start due to spring storms that made the ground too muddy to build, but now the ground is firming up, and crews can continue projects. There are four phases in construction before we can connect your home to speeds up to 1 Gig.
- Design phase
During the design phase, our engineers are planning where our infrastructure will be, getting permits approved, and making sure everything is laid out in detail for construction to get started.
- Lay conduit
The conduit is the tube that houses our fiber lines, so they don’t get damaged while in the ground. We use a Ditch Witch machine to bury the conduit, which gives us the framework for our network.3. Install Fiber
Fiber is the cable that brings the internet to your home at the speed of light. Once the conduit is in place, we pull our fiber through it. There are multiple fiber strands per cable, which gives our customers their own dedicated line.
- Splicing and testing
After everything is in place, we do what is called splicing or separating each dedicated line of fiber and connecting it to a cabinet that feeds into your home. And after everything is in place, we test it to ensure our customers get the fastest speeds around without a hitch.
In Kemmerer, we have several streets undergoing splicing and testing, and customers will soon be called to schedule their installation. If you live on Fifth West Ct. or Uinta Dr., your streets are just about ready to go.
Huntsville, Eden & Liberty
In Huntsville, Eden, and Liberty, construction crews are laying conduit and getting ready to install Fiber. These areas are on schedule to get connected in late August.
