How is theNetwork Built?

The network is built using microtrenching technology. The microtrenching machine is specifically designed to cut a 1.25 inch wide by 12 inch deep trench where fiber can be laid. The machine cleans the debris as it cuts so no dust is created, and the machine operates at a low 85 decibels. After the trench is cut, the fiber cables are laid and the trench is reinstated.
