ConnectME Project Update!

Dear Bowdoinham Residents in the ConnectME Fiber Optic Internet project area.

 

Congratulations!! – You have now reached (and exceeded) the 100 signed application threshold so that Lincolnville Communications Inc. can now begin the work of bringing O.P.E.N.™ Fiber Optic Internet service to over 215 unserved addresses in Bowdoinham.

 

The next steps in the project are as follows:

  • in Sept: Our LCI Engineers will be in the area to gather more info to complete the detailed network design.
  • in Oct: We will complete the legally required “pole permitting” and “make ready” process that will allow us to attach our LCI Fiber strands to the utility poles.
  • In Nov & Dec: Our Sub contractors will begin splicing and installing approximately 25 miles of Fiber Optic cable throughout Bowdoinham.
  • in Nov & Dec: LCI Engineers and IT Network Specialist will install all distribution equipment needed to manage the new fiber optic network.

 

Then, in Jan 2020, LCI crews will begin installing blazing fast O.P.E.N.™ Fiber Optic Internet service connections to those customers who have already submitted an application.

 

Of course, we can’t control the weather, and as you know, winter storms in Maine can often be brutal.  But, we are experienced at doing fiber installations all year long.  If conditions are not dangerous, we’ll be there bringing fiber optic internet to all those who have applied.  Later this year an LCI Customer Service Rep will contact you to go over all the details and set up your installation date.

 

If you haven’t applied yet – there is still time to be included in the first wave of installations.  Just click the link below and fill out the simple on-line application (it only takes 2 mins.).

Everyone is asking, “which roads will have fiber optic internet service first?”

 

The short answer is that we won’t know the final installation schedule until we finish the design work in Sept., Oct., and Nov. 

But … if you haven’t applied, we encourage you to do so NOW

The more signed applications we receive for each main road (Dingley Rd; Carding Machine Rd; White Rd; River Rd.) will help us determine where we should start our installs first!
