We install fiber optic conduit, a kind of fiber optic protective tubing that surrounds individual fiber strands to keep them safe. We also install handhole access openings that look a lot like the access hatch you might find in a lawn irrigation system. This allows our fiber technicians to easily access the lines for maintenance or repair. We install this equipment in the public right-of-way so the lines can be branched out to connect individual homes.
The City reserves the last two to four feet from the sidewalk for utilities. This right of way houses utilities, including power, water, and in this case, the conduit that carries fast, reliable fiber internet to homes and businesses.
The right-of-way measurement can differ depending on your neighborhood. Contact your City for specific details regarding your right-of-way.
