What does a Fiber Install Look Like?
For overhead installs, we will run a 'Drop Cable' overhead from the main electrical poles to your home.
For underground installs, we will use an existing trench with conduit that runs from the main electrical poles to your home. The 'Drop Cable' will run through this conduit. If you do not have an existing conduit ready for fiber, contact us for assistance in coordinating this project and view our
Underground Installation Guide.
Our team/technician will come inside your home to set up the Fiber module inside.
Home WiFi/Router Set Up: We bring the internet via fiber optic cable to your home. After this, you may set up your personal router or home wifi system via ethernet. Here are our personal recommendations for Home WiFi Systems.

Do I need to dig a trench and put in conduit for my install?
In some neighborhoods, their is no overhead infrastrucutre (a power pole) to string the Fiber Optic cable on. If this is the case with your home, then a trench and conduit will be necessary for your install. The approximate cost is about $12/ft for this to be completed by a contractor.
