What Does It Mean If My Zone Is Gathering Interest?
12:21PM November 19, 2018
As much as we'd love to connect everyone overnight, it's going to take much more than a few hours to build fiber internet out to every one of our members! The fiber system is being placed alongside existing electrical lines and our electrical system took us 80 years to build. In comparison, completing this build out in our projected five years really isn't such a long time! Pre-register now at http://bit.ly/HWConnectFiber_so you don't miss out.
We promise to provide access to fiber internet to every one of our members! But, this means that during these five years everyone will be in different "steps to connection" - the first of which is "Gathering Interest".
We have limited numbers of crews working for us, so when a crew completes the job they're on and are ready to begin designing another area of our system we pick the zone at the top of the list of "Gathering Interest" to design next. There's no 'magic number' for sign-ups at this point, so you won't see a percent to goal listed for your zone at this point. Instead, the important thing is for your zone to be higher on the list of zones in the 'gathering interest' step than any other zone.
Have more questions? Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we explain the other 'steps to connection' and if you aren't seeing your questions answered, send us a message or let us know below!
