The PresentationSaturday the 15th at the Lexington Market by the staff of MTC was thorough and much appreciated.
Those Jewett residents who are on the routes listed below and who were unable to attend the presentation, are strongly urged to contact MTC if they have questions or definately wish to sign up.
a subsidiary of the Margaretville Telephone Company, will commence construction
of a new fiber optic network into the approved project area within the Town of
Jewett this September. The new fiber optic facility will offer broadband, cable
television, telephone, and business class Ethernet services to residents who
are currently unserved with broadband service. The project area will generally
extend along the following routes:
NYS Route 23A from Lexington Town
Line to Maplewood Cemetery
Greene County Route 17 from 23A to
Cloos, Koss, Little Timber, Carr and
Silver Springs Roads
of the network will occur in phases extending from 4th Quarter of
2018 through the 3rd Quarter of 2019. Residents who are considering
subscribing to one or more of the services offered by MTC are encouraged to
examine the route of their existing utilities (electric and telephone wires)
into the home to determine if they are run overhead (aerial) or are buried to
the side of the home. If the existing utility wires are aerial to the side of
the home, no action is necessary at this time. If your current service cables are
buried, there are generally three (3) options that are available to you for the
installation of the new fiber optic cable:
underground conduit may already be in place and sufficient in size to allow MTC
Technicians, or a qualified electrical contractor, to pull a new cable into the
new conduit will need to be installed from the service pole to the side of the
home. It will be the responsibility of the home owner to have the conduit
buried. MTC will supply the conduit and other drop cable related material.
some instances, an aerial cable may be placed in lieu of the underground
service (temporarily or permanently). This is dependent upon cosmetic appeal,
distance, rights-of-way, and ability to maintain adequate clearances.
(Additional limitations and conditions may apply).
Residents with underground utilities are encouraged to
contact the MTC Customer Service Center at 877-727-2288 to schedule a
site-survey to determine the best option for installation.
