Making the Connection

Fiber connections in east Quilcene are underway.

Our fiber “hut” at the Quilcene electric substation is now live and receives data at the speed of light from our 310 Four Corners network hub. The signal is sent out to homes via fiber distribution lines installed by PUD line crews throughout the region. A second, smaller fiber hut will be placed at the Discovery Bay substation in April.

Fiber to the Home Process

PUD line crews running main line aerial fiber to the Lindsey Hill Rd neighborhood.

No-charge fiber construction to the home for eligible customers requires completion of a service application. PUD staff will contact registered homes within current work zones to determine construction timelines and provide service application details. Customers can choose between internet service from the PUD, or one of our qualified providers. For customers with overhead communication lines, PUD line crews will bring the fiber from the pole to the exterior of the home. Staff will then set up a time for a network technician to bring fiber into the home and install the equipment. In-home equipment is provided with PUD service.

Underground fiber to the home will be completed by North Sky Communications, LLC. North Sky was awarded the winning bid ($10.9M) for the Olympic Fiber and Inbetweens grant area construction. PUD staff will reach out with a service application prior to work.

The Olympic Fiber and Inbetweens projects will be built during the same timeframe. Combining efforts allows us to save both time and money. Construction begins in March and will continue throughout the year.
