We have fiber in Heritage Lakes and Millican Reserve.

We have a few areas coming online later this year but I'm not saying where until we are ready to do signups.

Need to know what provider has it.
Most of suddenlink's HFC is fiber backbone but they don't support DOCIS 3.1 in all areas so no gigabit in all their service area. And don't think they have any fiber to the premises offerings other that custom builds. Have used their fiber for some PTP high speed circuits.
Think CEO is active in Duck Haven, Brentwood and some other subdivisions off Wellborn.
Also remember does not matter if its fiber if the ISP's upstream infrastructure is not congestion free it does not matter how fast the last mile is.

A few months ago some contractors were running what looked like fiber underground in the Oaks neighborhood in Bryan. Then last weekend a marker post showed up at the corner of Old Oaks and Woodmeadow indicating buried fiber. I have no idea who ran the lines or what the plans are for it.

They told me they were being run for school and hospital use only when I asked them

Your federal dollas being spent here at least. Here is one of the many press releases about bvcog getting the funds and cienna and CenturyLink building it

Ultimately, the government and healthcare entities that BVCOG hooks up to their fiber ring will end up saving thousands of dollars every month which they can put to better helping the people in our region.

Generally, I am against government competing with private industry but in this case, the groups benefiting are funded by taxes so anything that makes them more efficient is a win.

I'm ok with the network, a little concerned with how they stretch things in the law to do things which may be ok but questionably within the scope of the law. This law was designed to connect rural health care facilities to larger ones to support thing like telemedicine which requires large image files and hi res video conference. But they add schools by saying there is a nurse there. Yes but there is one at my mom's house more that the one is at school, and no fiber drop there. And at those schools there is no ct, MRI video endpoints etc to tie to it.
These are not supposed to be internet connection transport, but telemedicine infrastructure. I suspect they will be used for more mundane uses than the advanced technology the law was intended to provide.
I'm for free market but when they fail as they have for the most part in relation to high speed internet, then am ok with Muni provided networks.
In this network case I think they could have built it for it's intended purpose and sold iru's to over build and lower the overall costs. I suspect even you would have been interested in a selection of dark pairs for an appropriate equity investment.
It's just crazy not having municipalities, pseudo public entities, private companies and anyone else share capx and opx in a robust networks that can benefit the most. But no everyone trenches, bores, engineers, coordinates their own and that is just crazy.
I bought fiber irus for dark and wavelengths on multiple subsea cables for bandwidth and distances thousands of times larger for less money than you would pay to build a network like these. It's time to build them so their cost can be amortized across more than just the taxpayers.

Any plans of getting service to the Snook area that you can talk about? I'd love to drop directv and go to a streaming service, but rise just isn't consistent enough with their speeds
