We are proud to announce the completion the latest fiber Internet expansion to the community of High Forest Ranch (HFR). This will bring Gigabit speed Fiber-to-the-Home Internet service to the subdivision.
The High Forest Ranch Homeowner’s Association (HOA) established a committee. They began searching for a better Internet provider in early 2019. They searched for qualified and interested vendors to install and service Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Internet service to their subdivision. In June of 2019, the High Forest Ranch HOA Board of Directors unanimously selected StratusIQ as a partner to bring fiber internet to the community. Furthermore, the decision was ratified by a resident vote on July 9, 2019.
“The neighborhood had very poor Internet, which left residents frustrated. As well as, the previous lack of options for improved service. The StratusIQ project is now complete. The residents are very happy. We can finally have reliable, high speed Internet connectivity”, stated HOA President Jeanette Bachmann.
First, development began in August of 2019 and included over 40,000 feet of distribution fiber throughout the subdivision. Despite the above average snowfall, construction of the distribution portion was completed in December of 2019. Furthermore, the project included construction of over 18,000 feet of transmission fiber to tie the subdivision into the existing StratusIQ fiber network. The transmission portion was completed in January of 2020. Finally, Fiber-to-the-Home activations are currently underway.
“This was a large fiber build. We are happy to provide the residents of HFR access to the Gigabit Internet service that they have been anxiously waiting for,” said Sebastian Nutter, Director of Sales and Marketing for StratusIQ. “Most noteworthy, we’re very excited about the launch of our Stratus-phere Smart WIFI Service in coordination with the activation of HFR.”
