Construction Update 8/21/18
4:19PM August 21, 2018
Velocity is now entering week seven of construction and the make-ready phase for the high-speed internet network. To clarify some of our terms, the “make-ready” phase is referring to the preparation work that occurs ahead of the contract crew to ensure that Butler Electric’s system is strong enough to handle attaching the fiber cable to it. The construction phase consists of attaching the fiber to our poles, as well as construction of the monopoles that will hold the radios.
We are currently in construction and make-ready phases in zones 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, with monopoles being set in zones 2 and 6. In the next five weeks, we will beta test the system in select areas to finalize all equipment and radios procedures.
We are excited to deploy Velocity and want to thank you for your patience in this endeavor. Remember - Don’t sign any long-term contracts as we will be in your area soon!
