"Providing Hometown Reliability"
At its January 2nd, 2002 meeting, the Board of Public Works authorized the establishment of an Internet Department. This set the stage for MMU to provide wireless and fiber high-speed Internet service. As a municipal utility, we believe it is our role to consider offering services that are needed in our community, when we might provide a higher quality of service than is otherwise available, or when we might provide a service at a lower cost than is otherwise available.
The map at left shows our progress installing fiber throught the town, and will be updated as more areas are completed. It is color coded to reflect how close each area is to completion. If the area is green, all the splicing is done and we just need to plug in the fiber and do the installation at the customer's house. If it is yellow, there is one location that needs to be spliced. If the area is red, there are two locations that need to be spliced. Areas with no shading require more than two splices or no fiber has been installed yet. Splicing at a location typically takes a day if we have the proper equipment available (not being used on power lines). Click on the image for a larger view.
