First Light Achieved!

The fiber links to Empire High School and Esmond School were connected on May 5th and 6th, marking our first school connections after 3 years of planning and construction. The new 10 gigabit connection to Empire is 10 times faster than the leased Cox connection it is replacing.

25-year fiber veteran Mark from M&P Communications fuses the individual fiber connections from each school to the main hub at Cienega. Keeping 138 connections…each thinner than a human hair…clean, sorted, and labeled…is an impressive feat, and we’re grateful for his expertise.
