MEC Monthly Construction Update

Subscribers to the broadband service received a January update from MEC


Over the last month, work crews with mini excavators and directional boring equipment have been hard at work as fiber internet construction continues. You’re probably seeing a lot of Miss Dig and proposed route flags and right-of-way markers going up. All great indicators that your fiber internet service is on the way.

Construction of the mainline from Chelsea to the township line is complete and work is underway along Werkner Road and nearby areas that have permitting completed. From mid December to early January, crews staked over 4,000 foot on Boyce Drive, and bored nearly 2,000 feet on Island Lake Road and 3,469 feet on Ellsworth Lake Road.

We know you’re eager! Please continue to encourage your friends, family or neighbors within the township to visit www.teammidwest.com/lyndon and sign up for service before April 30 to take advantage of the free installation.

Connections from Main Line to Homes

As you know,  there are many stages to take the project to conclusion.  At each stage we have hired highly qualified firms to carry out the work. This includes Consulting, Engineering, Outside Plant Construction and ISP (Internet Service Provider)
 We are currently in the process of selecting a firm to install the connections to our homes (drops).  We will have this selection process completed in the next few weeks.  Once we have a contractor on board,  we will develop the detailed schedule and process for making these home connections. We expect to begin this work in early spring.
If you have subscribed to the service , you will be receiving monthly updates via email from MEC our ISP.  Updates  are also being posted to lyndonbroadband.org
