July Updates

July 31st – We have just received notification from Consolidated Communications (owners of the utility poles) that they are ready for us to begin pole survey work! We will be surveying over 2,000 utility poles to determine which poles are ready for attachment and which poles need some pre-attachment work. Next up, we string the fiber!

June Updates

These communication buildings are now in place in Calais, Maine! They will house the fiber that will bring you the fastest, most reliable Internet service available. Each unit weighs about 42,000 pounds and is made of pre-cast concrete.
