With federal and provincial governments making a greater commitment to telecom infrastructure upgrades to these new fiber optic services rarely come at a cost to the customer. Currently, telecom companies are offering homeowners upgrade options that are covered 100%. Once a homeowner makes the decision to upgrade their services then we come out to access their property and determine the most efficient means of installation. Whenever possible, we offer to install the new conduits via horizontal directional drilling. This method of installation allows GCS to install your new fiber optics with little to no disturbance to your existing yard, driveway, sidewalks, and landscaping. There are no messy trenches or large pieces of equipment.
There are two main ways to connect your business for new or upgraded fiber services:
Aerial Access: we are contracted by the cable provider to extend the fiber from your nearest utility pole to a small feeder box we install on the side of your home or business. From there, it goes into a media panel inside your home.
Buried Access: we are contracted by the cable provider to dig a pathway, install the new or upgraded fiber line and then fully restore the land to its original condition once the work is complete.
Fiber optic cabling installations require highly skilled and fully qualified installers. The techniques needed to professionally install them for immediate and effective use require expertise and experience that only certain people have. All our technicians are highly trained and certified with years of experience following the strict safety and design standards as laid out by the telecom industry.
