The Montrose Mutual Telephone Company has announced a new multi-million dollar project to install FTTH (Fiber to the Home) over their existing copper/fiber network in their service area. Engineering is currently underway for the multi-year project.
Construction is set to begin in 2017 and will cost over 15 million dollars with the goal of bringing enhanced broadband services to rural areas. Faster internet speeds can be a boon to economic development and can benefit other aspects of life such education, healthcare, and recreation. The new network will start from each central office and end at each business and residence. No service interruptions are expected during installation.
