Connect Update: Storage & Splicing

Storage-_20190123-155354_1 Storage


You have been informed on material arrival and construction, but do you ever wonder what happens to the materials between those times? We wanted to give you a behind-the-scenes look at our contractor's storage facility. With the help of our contractors, System Services Broadband, these stacks of materials are being transformed into a reliable broadband system for our community.

Before materials are even ordered, each piece of equipment is researched, discussed and carefully chosen to ensure the most efficient system possible. When orders arrive at Forked Deer Electric's main office, materials are counted, examined and transported to a storage facility. From there, our contractors can easily access the materials they need while checking inventory.



Forked Deer Connect has taken the next step in construction. Splicing began Monday, January 21, 2019, at the Millcreek Substation. The splicing process involves fusing two fibers together, which allows light to pass through the fibers without loss or reflection. Splicing is one of the many processes involved in our broadband build-out, and we are excited to continue working towards the final product.
