Fiber is a technology that allows telecommunication companies like us to transmit internet and telephone signals at lightning fast speeds using optical fiber over traditional copper wire systems.
Check the locations below to see updates on our fiber progress in each area.
The contractor (sometimes UP.net and sometimes a subcontractor) comes in and starts with the main roads and moves to smaller roads. Another crew then starts installing the drops to the customer’s home. There is another crew that follows behind and does clean-up and site restoration, as well as inspectors checking on all of the contractor’s work. For projects being conducted by other subcontractors, we will have up.net personnel in the field inspecting the projects and advising contractors throughout the process.
In places where the contractor performs underground work, they will fill in all of the holes, regrade, and then seed and mulch. In some cases, if the weather does not cooperate, the contractor may not be able to perform all this work right away. If this happens, the contractor will return in the spring to handle unresolved issues. We will not leave our customer’s yards tore up.
There are a number of components involved, which include:
There are a few options for ONT batteries:
We offer free standard installation with an ONT battery or power pack. We will connect existing telephone service or install new service with one phone jack. We will install an Ethernet jack in one location.
A technician will install the equipment, hook up your phones, and provide you with a network jack to plug in your router (and sell you a router, if you'd like) as close to where you'd like it in the house as possible and verify that everything works as it should before departing.
