Fiber to the Premise
The Town of Mountain Village is upgrading its internet infrastructure from cable service to a fiber service. The Town recently appropriated the necessary funds to upgrade its broadband infrastructure to deliver 1-gigabit internet to Mountain Village. Fiber cables are the only thing that can support the demand for higher speeds as well as the distance within networks.
Over the course of several years, every house, condominium, townhouse, hotel and business will upgrade to a fiber connection. Inside each of these structures, an internet box will be installed by the Town of Mountain Village connecting them to our fiber network. For techies reading this, the internet box is the Optical Network Terminal (ONT).
Unfortunately, a small number of homes do not have the conduit from the road to the house and will need new construction to get connected. The Town of Mountain will begin contacting these properties in early 2020 with information on how to prepare your home for this exciting new network. Review our preinstallation frequently asked questions for more information. The fiber construction will be broken down into various phases. As these phases progress, customers will be notified accordingly.
