Nichols Fiber

Nichols Fiber update 9/2/22. – Submit Inquiry

STN and our contractors have been hard at work building out our fiber network in Nichols, NY.  We currently have over 5 miles of fiber installed and ready for customers on East and West River Roads.  NYSEG and Verizon have been working hard to expedite our pole applications.  Currently 2 of the 6 apps have been approved and I expect the remaining in the coming weeks.  Our outside plant contractor partners are getting the required materials ready and are scheduled to start work in 2 weeks.

This week we installed service drops to houses and are expecting to start in-home installations on September 12th!  Be on the lookout for emails from our ISP Fiberspark with information on the available internet service plans, how to sign up, and get scheduled for installation.  We are working on scheduling another public meeting at the fire hall in late September.  I will be sending out an update with the details once we have them confirmed.  I hope to see you all then, Thank you for your continued support!
