Comprehensive EUGNet Schedule Update (4/8/2019)
The EUGNet team continues to install EUGNet fiber to buildings that have signed up for services and have executed a connection agreement.
EWEB crews, working in tandem with other contracted fiber installation professionals, have been expanding the EUGNet network by running fiber cables through EWEB’s existing underground electrical conduits. You may have seen them with massive spools of orange micro-duct in the street, in front of your business, or as you’ve traveled through downtown. The planned fiber network covers the part of downtown where the power lines are underground. See the project service area map to see the planned service area.
Construction work needs to be completed in a specific sequence. Micro-duct, which houses and protects the fiber optic cables that carry high speed internet, must be installed before fiber can be run through it into buildings. Micro-duct is run between EWEB’s electric vaults in the streets of downtown. Click Here to meet “Jetty” and see how EUGNet fiber optic cable is installed
Installation has experienced a number of delays resulting from wildfires in the region (motivating an EWEB response to a call for mutual aid from utilities impacted in California) and ice and snow storms in February, 2019.
When construction is nearing for your building you will be contacted by a EUGNet representative to schedule a site visit. This will initiate your construction process, and your fiber connection will shortly follow.
The highly discounted $2,000 connection fee is no longer available. Connections will continue to be available for the non-discounted $10,000 cost.
