Township Hall Meeting – Fiber to the Home for Presque Isle/Krakow Twp.

Thank so much to Tim Maylone and his son Justin from Cherry Capital Communications for coming to the Township to introduce themselves, and present their vision for Fiber to the Home for Presque Isle and Krakow Townships. We had a good crowd and I believe we all came away convinced that Fiber is what we need to make our area Internet friendly for the next several decades. Fiber is NOT a short term patch like copper wire, cable, or wireless. Fiber IS the future!

Below are some questions that were asked at the meeting and the responses:

Q. Can I ‘increase’ my speed later if I wish?

A. Yes, you simply contact Cherry Capital and they can increase it immediately.

Q. Is each home capable of getting the highest speed even if they did not order it from the start?

A. YES, every home is engineered for the highest speeds from day one.

Q. What equipment will be needed in my home?

A. The fiber connection will have a small box a fraction of the size of a cable or wireless box, and that is all you will need to bring the fiber in. Homeowners will be required to provide their own wireless router.

Q. How deep is the fiber laid underground?

A. Along the roadway, it is usually Four Feet, but to your home, it will be generally only 18 inches.

Q. How many devices can be used in the home?

A. The number is only limited to the capacity and speed of your own wireless router. There are no limits imposed by CCC.

Q. If we order the Telephone option does it still connect to 911?

A. YES! When you dial 911 it will be automatically directed to the correct location.

Q. With the telephone option what equipment will I need to purchase?

A. You will need your own phone and a battery backup unit in case of power failure. These are easily and cheaply available from a number of sources, and in most cases, your existing equipment will work fine.

Q. Does CCC have adequate sources of fiber to support this project?

A. Yes, they have multiple sources and existing contracts with several strong providers.
