May 2017 Fiber Project Update

As Dunbarton Telephone Company continues working to provide a 100% fiber optic network, we would like to update you on our current progress.

First, in the Gorham Pond Rd area, we have installed fiber cable on poles and are currently splicing the cable. Dunbarton Telephone Company will be contacting customers in the area soon to start scheduling installations.

Second, we have hired Tel-Power Inc. to run fiber optic cable in the Twist Hill Rd area. This work will be starting very soon. Homes on Armand’s Way are slated to be upgraded sometime during the summer months. Fiber upgrades to homes on Twist Hill Rd, Ordway Rd, Purgatory Pond Rd, and Morse Rd will follow.

Finally, engineering is taking place for the next phase of fiber upgrades south of Dunbarton Center. We will continue to share updates as they are available. Please call our office with any questions you may have at 774-9911.

February 2017 Fiber Project Update

Exciting news about faster internet speeds coming to Dunbarton!

Dunbarton Telephone is pleased to announce that we have been approved for a government loan that will enable us to transition our service area to a 100% fiber optic network.   Loan documents have recently been signed, allowing the advancement of funds, so we can progress towards bringing faster internet speeds to all of our customers.  This network upgrade will bring increased internet download & upload speeds of up to 100 mbps to homes in Dunbarton and the rest of our service area.  We have also contracted with an engineering company that is assisting in the planning and implementation of this project. 

While we take the necessary steps to move forward with this project in 2017, we continue to upgrade homes in Dunbarton to fiber.  This is currently taking place on Barnard Hill Rd. and Stark Hwy North, as far up as Burnham Lane.  We also have a crew ready to continue working to bring fiber to the Gorham Pond Rd. area, once we receive a shipment of more fiber optic cable.

We look forward to bringing faster internet speeds to your home in the near future.
