We are excited to begin the construction of our fiber-optic network this year. CTC has selected North Central Services out of Bemidji to build the network. The start of construction relies on the availability of their workforce, as well as seasonal/weather conditions. At this time, we are anticipating that construction will begin in spring/early summer, with many customers receiving service during fall/late 2021. Over the next couple of weeks, CTC will be contacting residents to begin the pre-installation process.
This process will require a CTC Technician to visit your home. At that time, they will install equipment on the outside of the premises, pre-wire for services inside your home, and prepare everything they can so that once construction is complete, we can hook you up with services remotely from our offices.
As COVID cases continue to be a concern in the area, we want to do what we can to protect you, your family, and our employees. We will take all safety precautions recommended by the CDC including requesting that our technicians wear a face covering and maintain social distancing of six feet. If you do not feel comfortable with a technician entering your home, alternate arrangements can be made.

A: Yes, funding is not an issue and the project is financially sound.
A: The engineering plan is complete and we are working with contracts to put a construction play together. Depending upon the weather, there could be a chance we start some construction in 2020, however, most of the work will be completed in 2021. You can expect to get hooked up later in 2021.
