With construction season just around the corner, Consolidated will be finishing fiber optic projects in Rhame and Grassy Butte once the ground thaws this Spring. Completing construction in these two exchanges will finish the rural portion of our fiber project which we started back in 2009. We have pushed over 7,000 miles of fiber optic cable in the ground since the start of our rural fiber project. To put that in perspective, that would be the equivalent of driving from New York City to Seattle WA, Seattle to Los Angeles CA, Los Angeles to Orlando FL, Orlando back to New York.
Thank you to all who granted Consolidated easements and put up with construction so you and your neighbors can enjoy the benefits of fiber optic facilities.
