Backhaul connectivity to Duluth is moving forward. Backhaul has been a major hurdle for Arrowhead in order to provide members broadband services. Agreements have been signed and work will commence shortly. The work will take some time to complete but the fact that the work will start as early as next Monday (5/20) is a major milestone.
Following the construction of this fiber optic cable in Lake County it will be spliced to Arrowhead’s fiber optic cables. This will allow Arrowhead to begin testing our network and lead to the eventual launch of services to the membership!
Much work remains, including a lot of construction to get fiber installed to a lot of member homes. With the weather starting to cooperate we’ll soon begin adding more construction crews to increase the rate of construction.
