(Neb)-Mobius Announces $2-M Fiber Optic Project In Crawford Listen
CRAWFORD - Mobius Communications is getting ready to install a fiber optic cable system across the entire city of Crawford. The council approved the plan on Tuesday and Mobius will work closely with city street and water employees to make sure the installation doesn't interfere with city infrastructure.
Mobius General Manager Tonya Mayer is excited to move forward on the Fiber to the Home project, which will bring fiber right to the customer's home or business. The company has already done a similar project in its hometown of Hemingford.
She's pleased Mobius is at the point financially that it can take on the roughly $2-million dollar project itself and hopes to have the bulk of the work completed within a year.
Mayer says the fiber optic technology is the most advanced available and will replace what she calls "yesterday's copper facilities," allowing Mobius to offer Crawford virtually unlimited broadband potential, making it "future safe" for Internet technologies yet to be developed.
Mayer says putting the entire fiber optic system underground will ensure better reliability for Crawford customers by avoiding the problems overhead lines endure from wind, ice, and snow.
Having its own fiber optic system also means Mobius can offer its full range of services, including 50 Meg broadband packages with higher speed packages available upon request...something Mayer says the company couldn't do before when relying on someone else's system.
Mayer says Mobius believes that small rural communities like Crawford deserve to have technology that can keep them vibrant and ready for the future by attracting new businesses and industries while helping existing businesses stay strong and grow.
