Fort Morgan, Colorado, Begins Construction of FTTH Network

FORT MORGAN, CO — The city of Fort Morgan will celebrate the first “pull” of fiber optic cable for the backbone phase of its fiber-to-the home (FTTH) network with a ceremonial ribbon cutting on Wednesday, July 5.

The FTTH network is a project that will provide access to gigabit-speed internet service for every home and business in the city. The Fort Morgan City Council budgeted $2.3 million in 2017 to complete the backbone phase of the project, which will be the basic skeleton of a system that will be built out into neighborhoods across the city.

The backbone portion of the project is nearly complete, with approximately 100,000 feet of conduit already in the ground and only about 7,000 feet remaining to be installed. Pulling the fiber through the conduit backbone will begin on July 5. The backbone portion of the project is ahead of schedule and under budget.
