[Newsletter 6/6/17] Our Fiber Crews are steadily working through Shiawassee County to bring residents and businesses the fastest internet available. While it may seem like progress has been slow, remember that because of fiber’s amazing benefits, it takes awhile to digest!
Our main area of focus in developing a residential internet network that is better, faster, and stronger is in the City of Owosso. We are expanding other communities in the county for business services. You may have seen our crews out and about working, so we thought you might be curious about what we are accomplishing!
In the city of Owosso, we are about to finish installing fiber optic internet in what we call SC7 (splitter cabinet 7). This is the area north of King Street and east of Dewey Street (highlighted in white). After this project is complete, our crews will be working on SC6 (splitter cabinet 6, highlighted in red) which they hope to finish in August.
In the near future, we will expand on Grand River Road east to State Road and go north and south half of a mile.
We recently added additional cable in Perry going east on Lansing Road out to Bennett Drive. This will expand our business area in Perry. DayStarr fiber internet has started to be installed in the communities of Owosso, Perry, Durand, Ovid, Laingsburg, Corunna, and St. Johns.
So far 2017 has been a record setting year. Our team has completed more than 120 residential fiber installs, and more than 25 new business fiber installs. We are on track to hit our goal of installing 500 new residential customers, and 100 business customers this year. Last year we did a combined total of 260 installs, so we are quite pleased with the level of progress this year. We hope you are too!

As we get into the heat of summer, our crews will be busier than ever! Be sure to say hello if you see our trucks out and about!
