Here's how we're bringing fiber Internet to the Unity area

As we build the fiber network in your area, we'll show you where we are in the process. Read below to learn what you can expect at each phase in our process. Be sure to sign up for updates using the form on this page so you can be among the first to pre-order and get state-of-the-art fiber Internet service.

Phase 1: Pre-construction Planning

As we prepare your area for construction, you'll see Consolidated technicians and implementation teams in your neighborhood. We'll be placing markers and signs where construction will take place, being mindful of local utility lines. We'll also inspect poles to ensure they are structurally sound, since we'll utilize existing electrical poles to hang our fiber lines, in addition to burying them underground.

Phase 2: Fiber Construction

Consolidated will begin construction to connect homes and businesses with fiber Internet service up to 1 Gig. The network backbone is already in place, and we’ll be working on the last stretch of fiber that connects homes and businesses to the network.

Following the plan developed by our engineering team, we will begin to use special equipment to hang the fiber lines on existing electrical poles or dig trenches to lay the pipes that encase the fiber. We'll also be installing fiber distribution cabinets mounted to existing poles. Customers will have individual fiber cables going from their homes to the hubs where they are connected. Give a wave if you see one of our specialized trucks or other equipment as we continue our work.

Phase 3: Splicing

Although you may already have seen fiber hanging from poles or in the ground, there is still much work to do. We will begin to connect the new fiber we will have laid to the fiber backbone, which will give customers access to the network - it takes sophisticated technology and precision to connect all the fiber strands together. This phase will also include installing electronics needed to run the overall network, and can be as time-consuming as the first two phases.

Phase 4: Testing and Pre-orders

When implementing new construction of a fiber network, extensive testing is done to make sure every leg of the network is working properly, including the back-office infrastructure at Consolidated.

While we iron out last-minute details, you'll be able to pre-order new service at your location. We organize our installation crews so we can quickly install as many customers as possible once everything is ready. We'll contact you as soon as we're ready to schedule your installation!

Phase 5: Ready for Sale

Residents and businesses can now order new fiber Internet service! If you have pre-ordered service, we will contact you to schedule a FREE professional installation.

On your installation date, we will add a junction box on the outside of the building and run any fiber needed to connection points inside the location. Once complete, we'll install your fiber modem and connect you to the Internet.

Before we leave:

  • We'll test your connection
  • We'll help you connect one of your devices to the Internet
  • We'll show you how to access the modem's wireless network
  • We'll show you how to login to our customer portal and subscribe to paperless billing

We are following the guidelines of public health agencies and recommending numerous preventative measures to our employees so that both our customers and everyone performing installation work remain safe and healthy. We are calling ahead of on-site scheduled service appointments to verify the location is safe to enter. We are adhering to all customer restrictions, limitations or policies and, if necessary, our employees may postpone or reschedule an appointment.

FAQs

Q: How is fiber Internet different?

A: Fiber Internet delivers more than cable or DSL. It delivers faster speeds, increased reliability, and virtually unlimited bandwidth. Fiber-optic cable carries an all-digital signal and is better suited to today’s wireless devices. Fiber is the most advanced technology to deliver high-speed Internet to your business. Imagine a life where your Internet service rarely goes down, and spending less time calling tech support. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

Q: What exactly is the difference between fiber Internet and what cable companies provide?

A: Fiber-optic Internet produces faster data transfer speeds. Light pulses send data through a glass tube the size of a strand of hair. Fiber produces an extremely fast connection over extended distances versus a copper cable signal, which degrades over a longer distance. And, fiber is capable of providing with the same download and upload speeds of up to 1 Gig, whereas cable uploads may not be as fast as downloads.

Q: What are the benefits of a dedicated fiber Internet connection?

A: The use of glass instead of copper-based technology makes fiber optic Internet less prone to outages and down time. Consolidated offers a dedicated fiber connection, meaning it is far less likely to be affected by service interruptions and it is not shared with the neighbors. It provides consistent and complete coverage for a home office or small businesses.

Q: What are the bandwidth expectations with fiber?

A: DSL or cable Internet connections are typically shared across several different customers. Because of this, bandwidth can be compromised during peak times of heavy usage. Fiber Internet operates as a dedicated service being used only by the business for which it’s established, negating much of that concern. That means fiber can accommodate more users and more devices at any given time at the service location.

Q: How does a fiber network benefit my community?

A: Having the most reliable Internet infrastructure provides more value to the community and its businesses. Because of the added capacity and improved dependability, a fiber network can benefit businesses that require large amounts of bandwidth for their operations. This fiber investment prepares everyone for the future of connectivity.

Q: What is the pre-order phase?

A: Our fiber construction crews will be working to build the network in your area and to offer you the opportunity to pre-order service when we’re about 30 days from starting installations. For customers who take advantage of the opportunity to pre-order service, your connection will take priority when it comes time for activation.

Q: How do I get a fiber connection to my business once it becomes available?

A: A connection box will be installed at your place of business, typically on the side or back of your business. This unit will also contain the power supply and battery back-up for the electronics.

Q: Will there be a data cap on my fiber connection?

A: No. There is no data cap on Consolidated Fiber Internet service. Some Internet providers offer packages that include a certain amount of data and then charge overages if you use more than you’ve purchased. With Consolidated, there is no limit to your data usage over your fiber connection. The bottom line is that a data cap limits what you can do on the Internet — with no data cap, you can video conference, download and upload, stream, download, use cloud tools, and run your network as you please.
