Fiber to Your Home

Underground Installation Guide


I need and/or want a trench dug for my cable to go in for the install.

Who do I contact to complete this?

Professional Underground Services is a company that we have worked with for many years to complete this type of work. They would come and dig the trench and lay the conduit, and then we would come in and install the Fiber Optic cable through the conduit and then into your home.

 

Contact Lane Fi for direct contact information for David Backman at Professional Underground.

 

May I dig the trench myself?

This is also a possibility and also can be more cost-effective in some cases if you are set up to do it with your own equipment or by renting a trencher from a rental company.

Please read through our trenching specs (below) to ensure that the conduit and underground run will meet our standards for the Fiber Cable.  We would also be happy to advise you with the process.

 

Where do I start?

Start by reading through the Trenching Specs (below) if you are interested in moving forward with digging the trench yourself, then I will schedule a time for Rhodec to come out and do a Site Survey with you. He can mark out the path and help you get started.
