Jan 2016: Surveying for potential fiber routes

Currently conducting survey work in the Doylestown, Pottstown, Reading, Ephrata, Lancaster, York, and Hanover area to select potential fiber routes to serve businesses in those areas. This is in support of a project that will bring a new fiber backbone from New York to Virginia by way of a more “inland” route through New Jersey, into Pennsylvania, down to Maryland, and then into Virginia, avoiding the traditional I-95 corridor.

These business routes are preliminary, targeting key employers in the above mentioned areas. Work consists of pre-planning the routes via mapping software with overlays of utility poles. Then the routes are driven to ensure the poles and businesses are where they say they are.
