Aguilar Node

AGUILAR NODE

We can connect tester customers in Salem Park East AND Salem Park West! If you are interested in helping us test please see the forum post requesting testers.

 

These two nodes bring our total to three nodes offering Salem Fiber service. I know it seems like slow progress but these have been strange times and we are going as fast as we can.

SALEM PARK WEST NODE

SALEM PARK EAST NODE

We are still working to bring the Deer Creek node online. This should be the next area where the service is available. I still have issues to complete but we are working hard to get this node done.

DEER CREEK NODE

The boring crew is working in the Mt. Loafer and Foothills nodes. Unfortunately, limited crew has slowed the progress. We will keep working in both to bring them online.

  3. Begin installing test customers in the Salem Park East and West nodes

  4. Install fiber and terminals in Deer Creek and Mt. Loafer

  5. MORE UPDATES COMING!

THOUGHTS

We are working hard everyday to complete this hugely important project for Salem. It may seem an overwhelming task but we have experience building these services and we are confident in the network and what it will be capable of providing to the residents of Salem. Thank you all for your enthusiasm!
