Miles and miles of fiber
As we prepare for our Lamoille County fiber network construction season it is important that we have the necessary materials on hand. Because the federal government has allocated $62 billion dollars in telecom infrastructure enhancements nationwide, many folks are experiencing long delays in acquiring the fiber needed for these buildouts.
In an effort to make sure we have the materials we need, VCUDA (Vermont CUD Association) made a group purchase of fiber at the end of 2021, which allowed Lamoille FiberNet and other CUDs to purchase fiber at better prices than we could get on our own.
Lamoille FiberNet is pleased to announce that we now have over 125 miles of fiber optic cable on the ground and ready for construction. We are grateful to Vermont Electric Coop for supporting our CUD by storing the fiber for us.
Fiber has less signal loss and less interference than copper cables, and it can carry far more data. Each fiber optic cable can contain multiple strands of fiber, and we have 48 strand and 144 strand fiber, ready to be deployed (different sizes are for different uses).
We are expecting to start construction this year and look forward to providing the residents of Lamoille County with fast, reliable internet.
The mission of Lamoille FiberNet Communications Union District is to make locally controlled, affordable and reliable high-speed internet service available to every address in our member towns – Belvidere, Cambridge, Eden, Elmore, Hyde Park, Johnson, Morristown, Stowe, Waterville and Wolcott – as soon as possible.
