VERY IMPORTANT SURVEY FOR THE BUGGS ISLAND TELEPHONE COOPERATIVE DSL SERVICE AREA
In this day and time, “state-of-the-art” means having a high-speed broadband connection. Smart is everywhere: smart phones, smart cars, smart tractors, smart factories, smart office buildings, smart homes, smart appliances and of course the smart grid. But this “internet of things” can create issues related to consumer density. Thus, BIT is exploring means to enable its customers to have access to the very latest “state-of-the-art” technology.
Now we need your help! BIT is asking the community to participate in a feasibility study to show interest in BIT providing the highest possible broadband speeds by deploying a “Fiber to the Home” network. BIT has implemented software to help in guiding this possibility of deployment, but it requires that we know if there is a sufficient demand from the members and the community; if so, BIT would plan its broadband infrastructure build-out dependent on that demand and interest.
Only Fiber-to-the-Home (delivery of a communications signal over optical fiber) can deliver the immense bandwidth that the online and video applications of the future will require. With such online options as feature length movies for download, online gaming, watching your favorite television programs and news online, as well as the option to upload your own movies to email and the internet for viewing by others, there is a higher demand for greater bandwidth than ever before. BIT wants to empower our customers with the fastest and most reliable network. Fiber-to-the-Home will do this.
But, deploying “Fiber to the Home” is expensive and must be accomplished in phases. Getting a project like this off the drawing board takes upfront capital and support from co-op members like you. We need your help! The survey PHASE 1 is now open! If you are a current landline subscriber, or if you live in the BIT landline territory, please participate in our survey by following the steps below that will help BIT identify areas of interest. Once you have found your residence or business, click the link to complete this very important survey.
Please help us too by spreading the word through your community about the survey. This is the means by which BIT can determine the feasibility. If you want Fiber-to-the-Home in your community or sub-division, please fill out the online survey. Without enough interest, BIT will have to forego the plan until such time as sufficient interest develops.
All verified survey submissions will be entered for a chance to win prizes! (Only one entry per location)
As always, BIT appreciates your continued support and patronage. We want to always be your communication’s company of choice, now and in the future. Let’s work together to get this plan underway!
Survey submission deadline: June 30, 2017
Phase 1 Survey
The map below shows the planned project zones for developing our fiber footprint.
As with any project, these plans are using the best available data but are subject to change due to unforeseen factors and user interest.
NOTE: Each zone has its own pricing structure based on each area's specific build-out cost and population density.
Phase 2 Commitment
How to find your Fiber Zone
