Nearly 3 Weeks Ahead of Schedule

Despite the wet weather, the contractor hired by AcenTek for the fiber build (Central Cable) has only had one rain day. This explains why they are nearly 3 weeks ahead of schedule with the construction. With only a handful of properties left to address in town and less than 60 left in rural New Albin, Central Cable is expected to complete this phase near the end of July.

THE PLAN:

  • 602 homes and businesses will be upgraded to fiber.
  • Approximately 120 miles of fiber optic cable will be installed.
  • Construction is estimated to begin in June and to be completed by September of 2018.
  • Customers will begin enjoying the benefits of fiber in the fall of 2018.
  • New Albin residents can expect to see vehicles/workers from AcenTek, CNS and Central Cable throughout the life of the project. CNS is the engineering company. The contractor for the project is Central Cable and all splicing and customer cut-overs will be handled by AcenTek.
