Fiber network phases to completion

Warren RECC and NCTC are building a fiber network to serve homes and businesses in southeast Warren County. Fiber is the fastest, most advanced way to deliver internet service to meet our needs today and into the future. We have outlined the steps to bringing this service to you.

Planning — Warren RECC and NCTC have worked to develop a build out plan that will progress in seven areas for the fiber network. View the areas here (PDF). Anyone living in these areas is encouraged to request service now. It’s a fast, easy process, and those who request early will be serviced first in that area.

Preorder — Warren RECC and NCTC work hard to notify homes and businesses in these areas before construction begins, encouraging people to preorder fiber service. This allows Warren RECC and NCTC to go ahead and build out to the houses earlier, so that customers can be connected sooner. Click here to learn more about preordering, and be sure to tell your neighbors, too.

Construction — Crews do the laborious job of running fiber along the predetermined routes. One area will be finished before crews move on to the next area. After an area is completed, a representative will contact everyone in that area who has preordered service to schedule an appointment for a drop to be installed on the exterior of their home. This brings the fiber to your home and prepares you for the final phase.

Installation — When the drops have been completed, NCTC will contact you to schedule an appointment to install fiber internet, starting with those who preordered service. During installation, a small box called an ONT, or optical network terminal, is installed in the interior of your home. Once a wireless router, either purchased through NCTC (highly recommended) or yourself is connected, you’re ready to enjoy all the benefits of blazing-fast broadband.

NCTC members in Warren County will soon have access to internet speeds up to a gigabit per second.

The Fiber for Warren project is expected to be completed by midsummer 2020. NCTC members in Warren County will then have access to the fastest, most reliable internet technology available with a variety of speeds to choose from. Speeds up to 1 Gbps will be available, but members can also choose bandwidth packages of 150 Mbps or 250 Mbps.

Crews will begin installing fiber in mid-March in Area 1, which includes September Lakes Way, Marston Mill Way and parts of Nob Hill Road and Old Post Drive. They will continue building in subsequent areas and should complete Area 7 by midsummer. However, long periods of rain and/or snow could delay the completion date.

The Fiber for Warren broadband project is a partnership between NCTC and Warren RECC to provide fiber optic broadband for members in Warren County. By working together, we can provide Warren County with lightning-fast internet that will improve the quality of life and increase opportunities in the region.

A partnership between two local cooperatives will bring world-class fiber internet to about 800 homes and businesses in Warren County.

Warren RECC, a local electric cooperative, and NCTC, a local telecommunications cooperative, are uniting to install fiber optic internet to those in the pilot area. Fiber is the fastest, most advanced way to deliver internet service and is capable of delivering speeds up to a gigabit per second.

Fiber technology meets our needs today and can fuel our needs well into the future. Internet across a fiber network powers education, telehealth, remote work, community development and overall quality of life. Through pulses of light traveling along hair-thin strands of glass, fiber will support the communications demands of our region for decades to come.

Construction is expected to begin in late 2019, and high-speed internet service will be available to homes and businesses in the pilot area in 2020. If the pilot program is successful, the cooperatives hope to expand services to other areas.

That’s where you’re needed. If you live within the pilot area, sign up for service with NCTC and encourage your neighbors to sign up, too.
