Progress in the Cold Temps

While some of the construction has been put on hold due to weather conditions, our mainline crew continues to work. We are pulling cable through the manholes on State Hwy 250, to eventually connect back to our central office. In rural Lanesboro, our crews will continue to use boring machines to run cables under the culverts, as long as the weather conditions allow.

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.
