Polar Communications' Fiber-To-lhe-Home project is ongoing and will be completed no later than 2016. We have been bringing fiber to our rural area to prepare your home or business for the future. You may not realize your need for having fiber optics at your location now, but one day everyone will have a need and it is growing fast. Just like rural water, getting fiber after the completion of this project could cost you thousands of dollars. WHY FIBER? Fiber is fast, Most people don't need speeds that fast.., at least not yet. However, there are more and more applications that will require robust speeds that only fiber can handle. We are seeing increased demands for video streaming and gaming, as well as an increased number of devices in each home that use broadband access. If you have not had fiber plowed to your location and would like more information, please contact our office at 70t.284.7221 or 1.800.284.7222.
