MAS – Planned/Scheduled Outage for moving fiber optic line due to the County Road 73 Expansion Project.

As of today at 8am there is about 47 locations expected to experience an outage due to the requirement to move our fiber line in preparation for the road expansion.

Here is the emails they have received – – First notice on 5/24/24 and reminder on 5/31/24

County Road 73 Expansion Project

Reminder sent 5/31/24

You are receiving this email as a reminder of the upcoming outage due to the County Road 73 Expansion project.  Please see below for the details.

Notice Sent May 24, 2024

We are sure you are fully aware of the County Road 73 expansion currently underway.  Due to this expansion, we are required to move our fiber optic line including the cabinet and pedestals along County Road 73.

This email is to provide you with advance notice of the planned work involved and the impact on your internet service.

We are planning to disconnect your internet service on June 3, 2024, at approximately 8am. The length of time to complete the necessary work for this expansion is estimated to take five days.  Internet service will begin returning to individual homes throughout your neighborhood as we begin splicing your lines back onto our network, in some cases service could return as soon as two to three days.

While this may seem like a long down time, please keep in mind we are removing and disposing of 9,000 feet of fiber optic line, then moving twelve pedestals and one of our main power cabinets 20 feet back from their current location.  After this we need to install a new 9,000-foot fiber optic line and splice 600 individual lines.

We are fully aware that this may cause an inconvenience and completely understand how important the internet is to you, which is why we will be working as quickly as we can to restore your service.  We will be providing updates via email throughout the process to keep you apprised of our progress.

Thank you for your support and patience as we support your County in their expansion efforts.

Please note, if on any of the days involved in this work we have inclement weather we may have to move out the expected restoration time and will notify you as soon as we can.

If you have any questions, please contact us via email – support@844skynet1.com.

Thank you,

To get signed up for fiber you need to go to our website at https://844skynet1.com. At the top of the screen click on “Availability” or on any green buttons labeled “Check Availability”. The first page you come to will allow you to choose your speed and whether you want a contract or not. You will then be sent to a page to enter your name and address. If you chose a contract you will then sign the contract and then be automatically sent to the “Right-of-Access” contract.
