We’re seeing some serious progress!
As of last week, we’ve hung more than 91 miles of fiber and 222 ports, which will be used to connect the main fiber line to individual homes. We are so proud of the hard work our crews and teams have put in the past few months to bring our fiber project from inception to reality! We are 61% complete with the core fiber construction in our Petoskey service area – in fact, we plan on lighting up part of that network this week! That keeps us on track to begin installations to the first homes in November.
For the first phase of the project, Great Lakes Energy members within 1,500 feet of the core route are eligible for service first. Those who have signed up and are within this area will be contacted to complete their order soon!
While this core route area is the first zone, we plan to bring Truestream throughout our territory, starting with the Petoskey service district. Where we go next is influenced by the number of registrations. So, even if you are not in one of the first areas, keep spreading the word. The registrations truly mean something to us!
