Broadband Update from Cook County

I’m pleased to share an update from the Arrowhead Electric Coop Facebook page – with a reminder that while this is good news, it doesn’t mean service will be available next week…

arrowheadBig Broadband News!!  Progress on backhaul (the all important connection to Duluth) is being made.  Monday, make ready work will begin on power poles in Lake County.  Once completed the much needed fiber optic cable will be installed and eventually spliced into Arrowhead’s cable.  It’s a huge step in the right direction for Arrowhead and everyone in Cook County.  No dates to provide at this time…stay tuned….!!

If interested in construction crew locations in Cook County: Fiber Splicers working in Schroeder, Aerial drop crews working in Grand Marais and pulling cable into conduit installed last year along Bethany Dr.
Meeting with contractor today to begin discussing the much anticipated construction crew ramp up…
