Preparations

Our team will begin doing home assessments next week, with construction to begin in October in the southern part of the Lanesboro exchange. A&A Electric and Underground will be the contractor on this project, also working with CNS (for engineering). The plan is to begin construction in September and continue until the ground freezes. Estimated completion date for the construction phase is spring of 2018.

THE PLAN:

- AcenTek received a Border-to-Border Broadband Grant for the Lanesboro fiber project. This will help AcenTek with about 40% of the total cost of the build.

- 474 homes and businesses will be addressed with this project.

- Construction is set to begin after Labor Day. The project is expected to be complete in 2018.
