It is a moving target! With larger projects such as our “Gigafy Phelan” project, construction will hit the ground running in all areas at once. However, construction can only occur once engineering and permits have been completed. This means that our crews will work on multiple zones at once, but release dates can be delayed or changed if there are engineering or permitting delays.
We do our best to keep everyone informed of the release dates and can sometimes be hesitant to share too much, we do so to avoid disappointment in the communities we serve.
Bringing our services to a community is a resource-intensive project that requires careful research and planning. From start to finish there are 4 main phases to our process, each with its own sub-steps and processes.
1. Research and Exploration.
We spend a lot of time in this phase, developing a construction plan for the communities we are researching and working with local authorities on permitting and other issues.
We use the data gathered to create a map of where we can build based on existing infrastructure and obstacles.
This is the step you see the most. Once our plans are complete, our crews get straight to work laying and splicing miles of fiber.
4. Sign up and Installation.
Once our construction is almost complete, we will release our order form for your region, and you can choose the services you want for your home or business. This will initiate the installation process which has its own steps.
Next up for release are the following zones and projects – exact release dates will be given in the coming weeks:
Bridgeport: Late August
Walker: Late August
Phelan – Gold Zone: Mid to late September
Phelan – Peach Zone: Early to mid-October
