Fiber to the Home 2019

Fiber to the Home 2019

As we begin 2019, we’re proud to say that about 60 percent of Golden West’s service territory has been upgraded through Fiber to the Home (FTTH). Of course, this means we’ve still got about 40 percent remaining. Rest assured that we won’t stop until we've finished the job, and the process continues with FTTH 2019.

Open Houses will be held in each 2019 FTTH Community at the following times:

 Community    Date  Time   Location
 White River  Monday, Feb. 18th   6:30pm   White River High School Theater 
 Murdo  Wednesday, Feb. 20th  6:30pm 

 Murdo Mini-Gym (Jefferson & 4th)

 Menno  Tuesday, Feb. 26th  6:30pm   Menno School Auditorium 
 Hot Springs  Thursday, Feb. 28th  6:30pm   Mueller Civic Center
 Kadoka  Tuesday, Mar. 5th  6:30pm   Kadoka City Auditorium
 Interior   Monday, Mar. 11th  6:30pm   Interior Fire Station
 Vivian  Tuesday, Mar. 12th   6:30pm   Vivian Community Hall

Installations in these areas will result in about 2,000 more subscribers with fiber.

Golden West has long been committed to meeting the need of broadband Internet for all. A recent order by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will help us continue our infrastructure expansion beyond 2019. The order promotes and sustains funding for broadband installation, further guaranteeing high-quality broadband services in rural America.

Fiber infrastructure not only significantly increases the speed of delivery for broadband Internet, it also offers a more reliable and more secure connection to the world for all telecommunications services – phone, cable TV and Internet.

Customers in the 2019 communities may have already seen Golden West contractors and technicians out and about preparing for the construction phase of FTTH. These folks are hanging clamshells, surveying, marking utility lines, etc. If you have any questions about the project or a contractor working in your area, please visit call 1-855-888-7777 and ask for the Engineering Department.
