Fiber-To-The-Home Construction Tops Half-Way Mark

November 14, 2022

Home, Kan. – Monday, November 8, 2022 – Blue Valley Technologies (BVT) continues to work on its deployment of fiber to the home inside the city limits of Marysville. The project, split into multiple sections and phases, has been steadily progressing. As of October, over 19 miles of fiber had been installed. There is a total of 30 miles of fiber included in this project – meaning fiber has been successfully placed in position to nearly 65% of the community. 

The company updated Marysville’s coaxial network in 2015 and deployed fiber to the business district in 2016. At present, the company provides high speed internet, telephone, and cable television services over its current network. Late in 2021 BVT’s board of directors made the decision to move forward on advancing the community’s technology to fiber.

Chief Executive Officer, Candace Wright, commended the board of directors saying, “We are very blessed to have a board of directors who values the importance of relevant technology, and have endorsed the deployment of fiber whenever feasible.” 

The company recently completed projects within the city limits of Bern, Blue Rapids, Bremen, and the rural areas north of Frankfort, and east of Winifred. Additionally, a fiber project encompassing rural sections of Nemaha County is underway, as is the planning phase of projects inside the city limits of Frankfort, Hanover, Washington, and Waterville.

Marysville customers will be notified when the fiber construction is completed in their neighborhood and their homes can be connected.
