After more than 2 years of work, the Watersmeet Broadband Internet Task Force is thrilled to announce that state-of-the-art fiber optic internet is coming to much of Watersmeet Township! Highline, a fiber optic service provider company, has now started digging and laying fiber optic cable in the township. Fiber optic is reliable since most of the cable is buried, and Highline will be offering speeds of either 1 or 2 Gigabits (1000 or 2000 Mbps). Their current goal is to have this service available to Watersmeet Township homes by mid-November, although this will depend on several factors outside of Highline’s control.
Due to restrictions placed on Highline by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), not every area of the township is eligible for fiber optic internet at this time. Specifically, locations around Dinner Lake, Duck Lake, Birch Lake, Moon Lake and Allen Lake are currently not included in the roll-out. To remedy this, the Watersmeet Township Broadband Task Force is continuing to actively explore all options to bring faster, more reliable internet to the remainder of the township.
Highline has a Q & A page that answers things like cost, installation, etc. Read More>
During the construction phase, please be mindful of the Highline (and AEG) crews working along the shoulders of roads. Please slow down and give them space to safely do their work.
