In 2022, we are focusing on continuing our phased fiber optic broadband infrastructure build. Keep scrolling to see what projects we have going on!
Mainline construction began in early July 2021 with fiber drops to the home finishing up around December. Cutovers began just before the end of the year, in December 2021, and finished up in the first quarter of 2022. Fiber services are now available!
We broke ground in the green shaded area in late October 2021. Mainline construction, drops to the home and splicing finished up at the end of March 2022. Cutovers began in April 2022 and should be completed by the end of the month. Mainline Construction for Phase 2 (the orange shaded area) began in March 2022 and we hope to begin cutover towards the end of the summer 2022. If you are in the yellow shaded are, do not fret! While we don't have definitive timelines for that area, we are planning to roll right into it upon the first two phases completion!
Conway Springs Phase I
Mainline construction has finished up and fiber optic drops to homes have been buried. Fiber services are now available!

Conway Springs Rural
Mainline construction has finished up and fiber optic drops are under way now. Fiber services are available!
Mainline construction for the green shaded area began the first week of August 2021 with conversions in that area finishing up in December 2021. Fiber services are available in this area. Our 2nd phase for Haviland, the red shaded area, began in late March 2022! Mainline and splicing has wrapped up and conversions will start in June. We will continue on to the blue shaded area, but do not have estimates on when at this time.
Mainline construction has finished up and fiber optic drops were buried to homes over the summer. Fiber services are now available!
As the time to bring Haviland Fiber service gets nearer, three primary events will occur.
First, construction crews will begin burying the fiber optic mainlines throughout the town.
Second, construction crews will bury fiber optic drops from the mainline to your home. This is a minimally invasive procedure, causing little disturbance to the yard. Around this time, our technicians will also place the external NID in close proximity to the existing equipment box on the outside of the home
The Network Interface Device (NID) is a small box which allows connection from the fiber to your telephone and Internet. The box is placed on the exterior of your home or business and is installed at no cost to you. This new box is similar to one you currently have on your home or business.
Finally, we will schedule a time for a Haviland technician to convert services from the old copper cable to the new fiber optic cable. This will consist of installing a new wireless router in place of your old modem, replacing the wiring from that location to the NID on the side of your home, and installing a power supply unit that includes battery backup. The battery backup is placed inside your home or business within 100 feet of the NID and must be plugged into a wall outlet. It will help maintain 911 access and voice connectivity up to 8 hours (24-hour backup is available at an additional cost) in the event of a power outage. The technician will use an entry point near the existing entry point to bring the fiber into the home.
