Timelines are based on the current list of registrations from jointruestream.com, which changes daily, and the current number of crews working. These dates are for construction progress. The drop brings the fiber line from the mainline to the side of the home and generally follows the path of your electric, overhead, or underground. 

Estimated times are for construction only. Installations in the home will follow AFTER construction has been completed, network equipment is installed, tested, and we have confirmed the fiber network and line to your home is operational.

We are updating our fiber mapping program, thank you for your patience as we make those changes. If you are unsure where your home is located, please message us on Facebook or email info@truestreamfiber.com with your service address and we can let you know.

Now let’s get to the important stuff!

Waters and Kalkaska 

We’ve begun the Phase 1 fielding in our Waters service area! Phone and email notifications will be sent prior to our fielders working in your area. After the fielding process is wrapped up in Waters, we will move to the Kalkaska service area.

Waters and Kalkaska Service Area

Orange: Gathering Interest

As a reminder of the overall process:

Phase 1 is the fielding and planning phase. We will begin in Waters in March, and move into Kalkaska and finish later this year. In this phase, we collect data including the type of residence, pole information, and other data related to infrastructure. This data helps us determine the feasibility of expanding Truestream, including mapping out infrastructure needs and how to get the fiber lines to members’ homes.

Phase 2 is the construction of the fiber network. The information gathered during the Phase 1 fielding process, including a proposed budget and map of the mainline fiber route, will be presented to the board later in 2021 for approval. If approved, the construction of the fiber network would begin in 2022. This construction process can be labor intensive because it involves running the fiber line along the electrical path, which includes both underground and overhead electrical lines.

Phase 3 is when we connect homes and businesses to the Truestream network. Depending on the timeframes of Phases 1 & 2, we expect to begin connecting homes and businesses in 2023.

Free in-home installation, valued at $149, is currently available for Great Lakes Energy members who register interest.
