Mansfield Community Fiber Construction Update as of March 8, 2021:
This week we are testing connectivity on Nichols Road and installing Customer Access Points on Meade Road and Buck Hollow Road. Once the CAPs are in and tested we can begin scheduling customers served by those CAPs. We will call you when we are ready to make those appointments.
Mansfield Community Fiber Construction Update as of February 26,2021:
Splicing continues in Fairfax to bring connectivity to side roads. Once that has been done our contractors will put in “Customer Access Points” – black boxes that hang on the fiber cable on the road. Customer drops get spliced into the CAPS and then we can schedule installations. Installations are continuing along the main roads that are lit and have CAPs installed. Our staff call customers when they are ready to schedule installation. Please note that we may have to wait for spring thaw before we can splice many underground drops.
Mansfield Community Fiber Construction Update, as of Jan 18, 2021:
The first two sections of our build into Fairfax and through the west side of Fletcher up to Austin Road is complete and “lit.” We will be splicing customer drop cable into the fiber pass through this week and following weeks until all pending drops on this segment have been spliced. As those splices are completed and tested we will call customers to schedule service installation. Construction will continue on the rest of our Fairfax route to Main Street, Nichols Road and lateral roads off all the “lit” roads.
Mansfield Community Fiber Construction Update, as of Jan 4, 2021:
The first section of our build into Fairfax and through the west side of Fletcher up to an underground section (pole gap) on Woodward Road should be completed and “lit” at the end of this week. Subscribers along that section will be getting their drop cable spliced into the main fiber pass. As those splices are completed, we will be calling subscribers to schedule installations. Construction will continue on the rest of our Fairfax route.
Mansfield Community Fiber construction update, as of December 18, 2020
Construction of fiber-optic strand and cable splicing continues in Fairfax. Drop cable is being placed and spliced when weather permits (work cannot be done in very cold weather).
We have light/connectivity on the first section of our current N.Fletcher/Fairfax build: Fletcher Road/Comette Road/Rugg Road/Tabor Hill Road/south end of Woodward Road. When drops are spliced and tested along this route, we will call customers to schedule installation.
Subscribers who have an urgent need for service are encouraged to accept aerial drops – these are simpler, faster and cheaper to build – and easier to maintain. Please feel free to send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We know that many of you have been waiting for this for quite a while – we appreciate your patience and your support! At this time of year seasonal delays are unavoidable.
