StratusIQ Completes Fiber Build for Gigabit Service to High Forest Ranch
1:53PM February 05, 2020
StratusIQ, the largest local provider of fiber Internet service, announces completion of their latest fiber Internet expansion to the community of High Forest Ranch. Completion of the fiber build brings Gigabit speed Fiber-to-the-Home Internet service to the subdivision.
The High Forest Ranch Homeowner’s Association (HOA) established a committee and 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 at a special board meeting. The decision was further ratified by a resident vote on July 9, 2019. “Our residents were very frustrated with the very poor Internet service in our neighborhood and the previous lack of options for improved service. We are thrilled that StratusIQ has completed the project and we can finally have reliable, high speed Internet connectivity”, stated HOA President Jeanette Bachmann.
Construction activity in the development began in August of 2019 and included over 40,000 feet of Distribution fiber throughout the subdivision. The project also included construction of over 18,000 feet of Transmission fiber to tie the subdivision into the existing StratusIQ fiber network. Construction of the Distribution portion was completed in December of 2019 despite above average snowfall for the area in October and November. The Transmission portion of the fiber build was completed in January of 2020 and Fiber-to-the-Home activations are currently underway.
“This was a large fiber build and we are happy to provide the residents of High Forest Ranch access to the Gigabit Internet service that they have been anxiously waiting for,” said Sebastian Nutter, Director of Sales and Marketing for StratusIQ, “We’re also very excited about the launch of our Stratus-phere Smart WIFI Service in coordination with the activation of High Forest Ranch.” Nutter added.
