JEREMY PEARSON

WITH DIRECTOR, FORT DODGE FIBER

WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO HOOK UP TO FORT DODGE FIBER? Pearson: Construction is set to begin later this month. Keep an eye out as you’ll soon be seeing construction crews working in the community. They will begin installing underground conduit, fiber lines, and other necessary facilities throughout the community. We will make sure to update Fort Dodge residents when construction begins so that everyone is aware as to whether or not they will have crews in their neighborhoods. As network construction continues throughout 2022, we are hoping to begin hooking up a limited number of customers by the end of 2022 for internet and phone services. Most areas will be ready for connections in 2023, unless of course, we run into weather or other unforeseen factors that could impact the construction timeline.
