Broadband Construction Resumes, Installations Continue
Summer is nearly here, and True North broadband construction is resuming after the long winter!
Construction crews continue mobilizing as road bans are removed from county roads, the ground has thawed and after yesterday’s wind, the sun is shining! Underground construction will start on the west side of Grand Portage and proceed towards Hovland while another crew works to install new power and fiber lines from the US/Canada border to Grand Portage. Aerial crews have also begun work between Hovland and Grand Portage while underground and aerial drop crews are progressing in Schroeder, Tofte, Grand Marais, Hovland and Grand Portage. Splicers are working in Schroeder, Tofte and Lutsen.
Service installations continue in Schroeder and have begun in the west part of Tofte. We connected our 100th customer today! More splicing crews will begin in limited areas of Lutsen next week and additional splicers have been working in Grand Marais as well. Installations for these areas are not yet being scheduled, but will be soon. Our Welcome Flier can help you prepare for your future installation by helping you select the services you want.
