Announcing Phase 1 of the Ting fiber network build
Our crews have hit the ground running and Culver City fiber construction is officially underway in Phase 1 of our network build. We can’t wait to bring crazy fast fiber to homes in the area!
So far, most of our work has taken place behind the scenes, designing, planning and getting permits. We’re excited to get started.
Not in Phase 1? Don’t worry. Once construction begins, we’ll work neighborhood by neighborhood and will announce next phases as we go.
What to expect from construction
We’ll be laying fiber using a microtrenching machine to bring crazy fast fiber to your homes. Microtrenching is relatively quick and much less disruptive to the surrounding area compared to traditional construction.
The process is fairly simple. We start by making a 12-to-18-inch cut, called a slot-cut, parallel to the curb. While creating the slot-cut, the microtrencher simultaneously vacuums the debris and another machine follows close behind, placing fiber tubes right into the clean slot. This trench is then covered with mortar and made level with the ground. Amazingly, there is no digging or boring associated with this method of laying fiber and we’re excited to apply this innovative technology in Culver City.
Construction work will happen in the city-owned right-of-way. This is the area on the street side of your home that’s owned by the city and is reserved for utilities. If you’ve ever noticed a water cap on your lawn, that’s typically around the dividing line between your property and the city’s property.
