Centurylink Installing Fiber in The Town of Superior CO?
I was just talking to an installer for Centurylink (subcontractor?) what they were installing along the road since I was confused because I thought Comcast, the local school and the phone company were all done building out our subdivision of Rock Creek.
He told me it was fiber for Centurylink, I said that was cool, but I told him that I thought they already had fiber running to and from their major boxes along the road, so I asked, You are not running fiber to the home as well, are you? And he said, Yes. Wow!
I didnt believe him so I called Centurylink and they said it would be done in about a month.
My question is, all utility lines are buried underground here, how are they going to run fiber in to my house?
Everything underground is run in conduit (pipes). They are usually over sized so another cable can be installed. My Daughter has an access box in her backyard which feeds more than one house. Access boxes are connected through conduit to each other then to a main feed point.
You should see how the Empire State Building in New York City connects each floor with telephone cable !!
