We’ve got a couple of short work weeks in front of us as we quickly approach Christmas and the new year. Our first year has flown by! As we enter these holiday weeks, we wanted to offer a quick construction update. We had unexpected delays in a couple of areas, and those individuals were notified last week. We continue to appreciate your patience as we work through many unknowns to bring this long-awaited service. We’re ready to tackle 2016 with a strong commitment to light as many customers as we can!
Calvin: All construction is complete and home installations are in progress. Folks in the Shavehead Lake area will begin hearing from us for installations in January.
East Vicksburg – North Mendon: The first official build of 2016! The walk-out work is complete and construction is underway. We expect to begin lighting folks up around May 1.
Northwest Cassopolis: All construction is complete and home installations are in progress.
North Three Rivers: This is one area where we experienced some unexpected delays on a couple of the circuits. Each circuit is on its own construction timetable, and installations should be underway across all circuits during the first quarter of 2016.
Schoolcraft: This was our initial soft-launch area and is fully constructed. We finally worked through the railroad delays and installations are underway. For those in the Woodbrook area, we expect to complete construction and begin next steps in January; you should begin hearing from us for home installations during the first quarter.
West Cassopolis – North Edwardsburg: Construction is complete and we have started lighting up customers. If you haven’t heard from us for your home installation, you should early in the first quarter.
West-South Dowagiac: Another area where we were derailed by railroad issues, but we’ve started home installations. If you haven’t heard from us yet, you should early in the first quarter.
West-South Edwardsburg & East Niles: The second official build of 2016! Walk-out work is complete and construction is underway. We expect to begin lighting up folks around May 1.
We’re still planning to add two or three additional zones in 2016, so keep spreading the word.
Everyone at #TeamFiber wishes you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
