Fiber Construction

What to Expect:

Our goal during our construction process is for our customers to be informed along the way, and excited for what’s to come! We will stay in touch with our customers through mail, email, and will even come to your door step. 


Engineers decide the most efficient way to bring fiber optics to the greatest amount of people in your area.

Contractors, city officials, and United Fiber collaborate on the fiber path design and submit to the city for approval.

Once the fiber path is approved, United Fiber partners with local contractors to begin the construction process.


During the Construction process, all existing utilities are required to mark their underground facilities to prevent damage.

Contractors and utility employees arrive in your neighborhood to mark the locations of existing lines in preparation for local construction.

Fiber optic cable is buried along the approved route. Fiber optic splicing is completed and the new plant is tested. As soon as testing is verified, installs can begin.

Engineering/Drop Install

After the release date, customers will be contacted for an engineering appointment.

The engineering appointment/drop install consists of connecting the mainline fiber from the road to a small box placed on the outside of your home. The time from the engineering appointment to the home install is typically 8-10 days. 

Home Install

Our local technicians will arrive on the date of your install and place a fiber line from the box on the outside of your home to our United Wifi Blast router inside your home. 

We test your services, help you set up our FREE United WiFi Blast app, and ensure you’re ready to fully enjoy United Fiber’s Fiber Fast internet.

Frequently Asked Questions:

There are flags in my yard. What are they for?

White flags are placed in your yard to show the route we are using for fiber. The colored flags are placed by the local utility companies to identify their lines and are required by law before we can start construction.

Why is there a pedestal in my yard and not my neighbor's yard?

The least intrusive point that provides service efficiently is used and approved by the city.

Do I need to mark my sprinklers to avoid damage?

Private utilities are not marked through the one call process. Homeowners will need to mark all private buried lines. This includes but is not limited to sprinklers, dog fences, etc.
