FIBER TO THE HOME UPDATE
Phase one of our fiber to the home project, which encompasses the Zearing exchange, is progressing well. Over 50% of the main-line fiber has been put in the ground and the drop crew is making progress plowing the drops to individual residents and businesses. Beginning October 15 the installation crew will begin coming into your residents and/or businesses to do the required wiring and equipment installation. Minerva Valley will contact you to make an appointment and discuss what services you are interested in. The fiber splicer determines who we will be contacting first and the order our customers will be installed.
The implementation of fiber allows us to offer faster and more consistant Internet service providing an experience to match your needs. The new Internet experience packages will be:
ESSENTIAL EXPERIENCE – 15/15 mbps – $55.00/month. This Experience package is a good fit for customers mostly using the Internet to browse, shop, be on social media, etc. The Essential Experience will support browsing the Internet for up to 3 devices at one time and for streaming over-the-top video for 1 device.
EXTRA EXPERIENCE – 50/50 mbps – $75.00/month. This Experience package is a better fit for households that want to do more video streaming along with Internet browsing. The Extra Experience will support browsing the Internet for up to 6 devices at one time and for streaming over-the-top video to 3 devices simultaneously.
EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE – 100/100 mbps – $95.00/month. This Experience package is a good solution for gamers, streamers, families with multiple people working at home or with students attending school on-line. The Exceptional Experience will support browsing the Internet for up to 10 devices at one time and streaming over-the-top video to 6 devices simultaneously.
EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE – 200/200 mbps – $175.00/month. This Experience package is for the serious gamer, streamer or those who need the bandwidth for their work-at-home or school-at-home needs. The Excellent Experience will support browsing the Internet for up to 20 devices at one time and streaming over-the-top video to 10 devices simultaneously.
Our landline pricing will remain the same. Our Skitter video package pricing will remain the same until December 31st. Skitter is implementing a price increase January 1, 2021. We will send information when we know exactly what the increase will be.
Phase two of our fiber to the home project will begin in 2021 and will encompass the Clemons exchange. After the completion of this phase all Minerva Valley Companies will have the benefit of fiber to their residence or business.
