We're Up to Our Necks in Construction!
Building a state-of-the-art fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network requires a lot of work. We will begin by placing conduit and aerial strand. For the most part, Beacon Broadband’s network will follow Coos-Curry Electric Cooperative’s (CCEC) electrical system footprint underground and in the air. ORS 758.120 was passed in 2021 and allows CCEC to use existing electric easements to facilitate the development of high-speed broadband to rural Oregon.You may see equipment in the field such as directional bore machines used to install underground conduit. Once all the conduit and strand are in place, our contractors will place and splice fiber. As we build, contractors will visit residents to install fiber drops to homes that have pre-registered for service. After the fiber is all tied together, we place electronics on either end and open the “fire hydrant” of data to your home. All of this construction can be disruptive, and we apologize for that in advance. Beacon Broadband and our contractors will do everything in our power to ensure your property is in as good or better condition than before we started work.
Investment in the Community
Building a FTTH network is an investment in our community; while it can be disturbing during the process, we respect you, your property, and our community. If you, your neighborhood, or HOA has questions/requests regarding construction or placement of outdoor equipment in the field and on the home, please reach out to our customer service team. By adding Beacon Broadband’s FTTH service, you not only gain access to fast and reliable internet speeds with local and friendly customer service, but you may also benefit from the increased home value, according to a study from FTTH Council Americas.
