What to expect during construction of our 100% Fiber-Optic network

Our construction phase is a temporary step in bringing you our 100% fiber-optic network to upgrade your internet. At FastBridge Fiber, there’s a lot of excitement in the air as we build and expand our network because we know that when we’re done, your internet will be incredibly fast and future-proof. We can hardly wait!

Planning Our Fiber Network

When planning a fiber-optic network, a lot happens before we ever put a shovel in the ground. A detailed network design is carefully created. This design includes where the fiber will be placed and considers many factors that impact when it will be installed underground and when it will be placed on existing utility poles. Once planned it’s on to construction.

We'll Be Sure To Let You Know When Construction Is Starting

When we’re ready to start construction in your neighborhood, we’ll place door hangers on homes and yard signs, where possible. And then, just to make sure we don’t miss you, we’ll send postcards.

EASEMENTS & RIGHTS-OF-WAY

It probably seems a bit strange to have people walking in your yard – our crew will be working on public rights-of-way and utility easements that may be located on your property. If the fiber in your neighborhood is being buried, we will bury a small underground container between your house and your next-door neighbor. It will contain fiber enabling us to connect the two homes to our network should you choose to do so. Once the work is complete, our crew will leave your property, and you and your neighbors will be much closer to getting fiber internet.

COLORED FLAGS AND PAINT MARK EXISTING UTILITIES

In neighborhoods where we’ll be burying the fiber, a utility locating company and/or the power company uses a system to mark existing utility lines with colored flags and temporary paint. These markers help our crew to avoid damage during construction. These markers are extremely important to prevent interruptions in local utility services and prevent injury from ruptured gas or electricity lines.

Please do not tamper with these flags and markings.

clean up & restoration

Our team at FastBridge Fiber ensures thorough clean-up following every job, leaving your home in its original, pristine state.

Once construction is complete and as weather permits, our professional crews will restore the area to as close to its original condition as possible in line with industry best practices.

Prior to construction we document each neighborhood, which includes taking aerial photos of the area.

Concrete/Asphalt

If our crews cause damage to concrete or asphalt driveways or sidewalks, they will come back to fix the spot once construction is complete. We will not restore existing cracks or damaged sidewalks or driveways.

Lawn Restoration

Our crews will rake, seed and straw the areas where digging occurred once construction is complete. Please be sure to water the grass seed when there hasn’t been much rain. We are unable to work around, move, or care for any flowers or plants that are in the utility easements. Before construction crews start work in your neighborhood, we will leave a door hanger and/or send you a construction notification by mail. If you're concerned about your plants, we recommend moving them prior to the start of construction to ensure they remain undisturbed.

Other Underground Items

Other Underground Items - If you have a sprinkler system, invisible dog fence, or any other underground items, as a precautionary step please mark areas of concern with white flags or paint to alert us. This will help our crews to exercise caution in those areas. You can also report any underground items to us by clicking the Contact Us button below and provide a brief description of what to look for and where.
