The following phone message is being sent to Great Lakes Energy members in the Petoskey service area who will be part of the high speed fiber Internet feasibility study:
Great Lakes Energy contract crews will be working in your area beginning May 8. They will be inspecting meters, poles and other equipment from May 8 until the end of June. Contract crews carry identification and will never ask to enter your home. If you have questions or concerns, please contact our office at 888-485-2537.
The message will also be emailed to members within the study area.
The contractor, America Fujikura Ltd. (AFL), will collect data that will give us a better idea of the estimated costs and expected revenue that this venture could generate.
After we receive the results from AFL later this year, GLE staff and the board of directors will review them to determine if we should continue to pursue this project.
