BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. –
Construction of the fiber network backbone began on December 1st, 2020
and to date crews have hung over 17,000 feet of fiber-optic line. Crews
continue to complete make-ready work to ensure the project continues at a
steady pace. “We have completed the planning and numerous steps to get us to
this point with the fiber infrastructure now being installed. This is what our
members have been waiting for, and we are pleased to reach this milestone with
the first phase of member connections to follow the buildout of the backbone,”
said Tyler Carlson, CEO of MEC.
Every day we are steps closer to
providing members with symmetrical and reliable internet. MEC’s fiber buildout
will supply TWN Communications the ability to provide reliable internet that
our members might not have seen before from other providers in MEC’s service
territory. We want all of our members to know that the fiber is on its way.
Construction of such a large communication project is time-consuming but please
know we are working hard every day to supply these enhancements to every member
before 2026. This project has a 5-year buildout that benefits many aspects of
our electrical system while supplying reliable internet service that all of our
members will benefit from.
Benefits to our electrical
system will include real-time meter reads, faster outage notifications,
and many more advancements that will ease the lives of our members.
