Fiber network construction is set to begin in Colorado Springs
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU) announced a plan to build a city-wide fiber network that will enhance utility operations earlier this year.
CSU says that earlier this week a contract with ADB Companies was completed.
Construction of this network will begin by the end of September in the northern part of the city.
According to CSU, the construction will be roughly from Woodman Road extending north to the city’s boundary between I-25 and Union Blvd.
This network will provide the connection from the street level, either underground or overhead, to a backbone ring, says CSU.
CSU states that as the network is built, service addresses will be available to sign up for internet service. They expect the first customers to receive internet service from Ting Internet in early 2023.
