FairlawnGig Construction is Nearly Complete!
We are happy to announce that construction of the FairlawnGig main line fiber network is nearly complete. The network will pass every home and business in Fairlawn and all neighborhoods will soon be ready to connect customers. What does this mean if you signed up for service? There is a multi-step process to get your home connected. The process includes bringing fiber from the street to your house and indoor installation of the equipment needed for FairlawnGig service. We’ve outlined the residential installation process to help you understand how it will work from this point forward.
FairlawnGig’s Installation Process
1. The Installation Plan
Now that the main network construction is complete, we are working as fast as we can to get customers connected. FairlawnGig has an installation plan in place that makes the most efficient use of our installation and construction crews to expedite the installation process. This plan moves street-by-street, keeping the installers and outside construction crews in one area to accommodate as many residents as possible each week. We have a list of streets below where homes are now being connected, which will be updated as we move throughout Fairlawn.
2. Scheduling Your Installation & Timeline
You can call us at 330-668-3300 if your street is on the list below to schedule your installation. If you do not call us, don’t worry—if you have signed up for service, we will be calling you when your street is ready for installation. When we schedule your installation, we will also advise you on a service plan that fits your Internet use. From the time we make contact to schedule your install, you can expect to be enjoying FairlawnGig Internet within two weeks.
3. From the Fiber to Your Home: the Service Drop
The next step is to connect the buried fiber from the right-of-way to your house (“the service drop”) before we do your inside installation. After we have scheduled your install, but before your installation date, we will put a box on the exterior of your home near where the fiber will enter. Later, a construction crew will install fiber from the right-of-way to the box on the outside of your home.
4. Installation and Activation
On the date and time that we scheduled your install, a two person crew will come to complete your installation of the indoor install and service activation. We have installation details here if you’d like to know more.
Thank you for support and patience throughout the construction process. We look forward to connecting you! If you haven’t yet signed up for service, please do so here.
