It's a big job to bring our fiber network to new communities.

Here's an overview of the process:

First, we bury mainline fiber, which is the fiber that runs along the main roads. Mainline is typically placed in the right-of-way. Since fiber cable runs underground, we utilize plowing, trenching, or directional bore techniques to get it there, which involves some big machinery.

If you have given us permission to bury / signed up for a fiber connection (aka a "drop"), the locators will come out to the areas where Lynxx is burying fiber to mark any underground lines such as: gas, electric, other telecommunications, etc. Flags and markings need to remain in place; workers will remove them when it is safe to do so.

The "drop" is what we call the fiber that is spliced from out mainline and buried in a trench to your home. The fiber is connected to a grey case on the outside of your home called an ONT.

When you get an e-mail from us saying it's time to order services, you'll go online and choose your internet, tv, and phone, and then schedule your installation date and time. On that day, a technician will come to your home to connect the outside ONT equipment to the router and devices in your home and make sure everything is up and running as it should be.

Area Updates

City of Mauston

Construction in the City of Mauston has started! We will be putting in the mainline first, which is the fiber that runs along main roads, in the right of way. Please keep in mind that this is a big construction project and with construction comes mess. While it will be messy, we promise to clean up after ourselves. Sometimes our contractors have to leave an area and come back to clean things up, but don't worry - they will return. It's important that residents in the City sign up for service now, as this gives our company and contractors permission to bury fiber on your property when we get to this phase of the project.

Townships of Lemonweir and Lisbon

Mainline work in the grant area is done and our crews have been running what we call the "drops" - fiber that connects to the home. The grant area is divided into zones, and the goal is to open up the first zone in September so the residents in the area can go online, apply for sevices and schedule their installation date. Once the first zone goes live for service, others will follow. Residents who have signed up for a fiber connection and had the drop run to their home should be watching their e-mail, as this is how we will communicate that a home is ready to apply for service.
Anyone who is interested in having service, but has not signed up for a fiber connection to their home/ given us permission to bury fiber on their property, needs to sign up for fiber by the end of September, 2023. This will be the last opportunity this year to get fiber run to your home. Requests that come in after September will be put on the 2024 schedule.

Village of West Salem

Our contractor, Steiger Construction, has put in the bulk of our mainline (the fiber that runs along the main roads, in the right of way) and crews are installing what we call the "drops" - the fiber that connects from the mainline to your home. 
We have divided the community into zones for this project and homes will be connected for services by zones, based on where and when the mainline fiber has been run. Once the homes who signed up for a fiber drop in a particular zone have the fiber line run to their property, we'll reach out with an e-mail stating that it's time to go online, sign up for service, and schedule installation with a technician. Two zones have officially opened in West Salem and more will follow.

Here's answers to our most frequently asked questions in our expansion areas:

1. If I want service, do I have to sign up?
Yes! If you want Lynxx Networks service you MUST sign up for a fiber connection. Signing up for service simultaneously gives our company and our contractors permission to go on your property and bury fiber to your home. You can sign up for service by clicking here. Signing up for service now does not commit you to taking certain services - choosing internet, voice, and TV options will occur at a later date. 

2. Does signing up for service require me to have Lynxx internet, phone, or TV?
No! If you sign up for service it means you are asking our company to run a fiber line to your home during the construction phase of our network expansion. It does NOT commit you to using our service; saying you'll take a fiber connection simply puts the service at your home in case you'd like to have our internet, phone, or TV in the future. 

3. Is the fiber connection free? 
Yes - while we are constructing our network, the fiber conection to your home is free. If you are interested in having Lynxx service now or in the future, we advise you to sign up for the fiber connection NOW. If you don't take the fiber connection now, but decide you want our service in the future, there may be a connection fee.
