March fiber hook-ups break record

Hey everyone! Ryan and myself want to let you guys know about the awesome work that our fiber installers, fiber buildout crews and our participating Internet Service Providers are doing to get fiber to as many Grant PUD customers as possible during this COVID-19 Pandemic.

In the month of March, Grant PUD hooked fiber up for a record 414 customers! That is almost double what we do in an average month! Behind that number is a massive amount of effort from Grant PUD employees, our contractor North Sky Communications, and our participating Internet Service Providers. It's even more amazing that we set this record in this time of social distancing with new rules and regulations to keep workers and the public healthy. That shows the dedication and determination of our workers as they follow new health and safety rules while they work as hard as they can to get customers hooked up to our fiber network.

We know how important a fiber connection is to our customers. We are going to continue to do our best to get more people hooked up to fiber. The demand has been great, and our workers are doing the best they can in these challenging times. For those who aren't sure if they have fiber available to them, we ask you to check your address on the search tool at grantpud.org/getfiber. If you are in a fiber area, call one of our service providers as soon as possible so we can bring you the fastest, most reliable internet connection available in Grant County. For those who are waiting for fiber service, we ask for your patience. We're really doing all we can right now to bring it to you.
