Construction Finishing Up

The construction phase is nearly complete for both the town and rural parts of New Albin's fiber build. The final phase, installation, will likely begin in August. During this process, an AcenTek technician will visit all customers' property to convert services from copper to the new fiber optic network.

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.
