Welcome to the Lynxx Fiberhood!

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 our 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 it's time to run the drop to your home, our contractors wil get in touch with you to go over where the line will be placed and if there are things in the yard to avoid (i.e. underground dog fence, sprinkler systems, etc.) 

After the drops are run in your neighborhood our contractors have work to do before we can connect your home for service. The cabinet (think of it as the brains of the operation in your neighborhood) has to be set, programmed, and fired up. We also have to splice fiber in multiple locations along the path between the cabinet and your home. Once the fiber is spliced, and equipment in place, we have to test everything to make sure there are no weak links in the chain. We run the drops as early as we can so when all the work is done, we can connect you for service as soon as we possibly can.

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

There seems to be some confusion about the grant project and the City of Mauston project. If you have a city address, you're included in our city project, which is on a different timeline from the project in the Town of Lisbon and Lemonweir. If you're in the city and have a drop, it doesn't mean that your home is ready for service. It just means that our construction crews started in your zone first and more work has been done in your neighborhood than in other zones. The mainline in Mauston is roughly 50% complete, but there is no fiber in the ground yet; only conduit. The mainline fiber has to be in place for us to splice your fiber connection to the mainline. There's a lot of work to be done in between when the drops go in and we can fire up an area for service, including setting equipment, fiber splicing, and testing. We anticipate that homes will start to be connected for service in the latter half of 2024. If you know someone who is interested in our service, but hasn't signed up, tell them do so now. The fiber connection is free and signing up now puts their name on our construction list 2024.

Towns of Lemonweir and Lisbon

All three zones in our grant area have officially opened for service. Now, anyone in our grant area who has a drop (fiber line run to their home) is able to apply for service and schedule their installation date. Anyone who doesn't have a drop, but would like a fiber connection, can get on our constuction list for 2024 by clicking here.
We'll be sending a crew back out to run those drops in 2024.

Village of West Salem

If you have a fiber connection (drop) run to your home, we intend on hooking your home up for service as soon as we can. We divided the Village into zones for this project, and our contractors are working by zones, so work will take place as our contractors get to your zone/  neighborhood. 
Six of our nine zones have officially opened for service in West Salem and the 7th is opening soon. If your zone is open you will have received e-mails from Lynxx stating your home is ready for service, along with instructions for how to go online and apply for services and schedule your installation date. 
If you are interested in service but haven't signed up for a fiber connection yet, you may still do so at this time. However, please note that your home will be put on our construction list for the spring / summer of 2024.

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.
