Hi Robert, I wish I could give everyone the news they wanted. But no, no new updates on Olathe 148. It has not met its preregistration goal yet. The good news is that Olathe 138 is underway and we've experienced that momentum bleeds over from live zones to areas like yours that are still working to meet their goal. Thanks for the continued support!

Hi Teri, Adam, Good news for Paonia 55 (and all our grant zones). We did get the final approval and work has kicked off in all the zones we submitted for grant funding. The timeline for each zone is a little different because each zone was at a different stage when we submitted them to the state for consideration. I've listed our expected timeline below: Paonia 55: Work on pre-construction is underway (clearing vegetation, prepping poles for fiber, underground construction, etc). We expect to be able install live service in homes this fall. Olathe 138: Much of the early construction work is complete. We'll be reaching out soon for people in this zone to sign contracts and we expect to be able to install live service in homes in July. Montrose W. 741: This zone is at a similar stage to Paonia 55. We also expect to install live service this fall. In the meantime, any help spreading the word is much appreciated! Thanks for the support.

Hi, Nathan! You are correct, there is a limited business build taking place in Delta right now in order to help boost economic development in the community. However, it does not impact the goal for Delta North 175. I’m sorry if there has been any confusion. We will work to bring fiber to all zones – thanks for the support!

Hi Teri, We are waiting to receive the final signed contract from the state. Unfortunately, we can't start any work until paperwork is in hand. We had hoped to have final word by the end of March, however, there were delays out of our control. We are now hopeful to hear within in the next two weeks. Once, we have the agreement and are able to outline our timeline, we will reach out to all the zones in the grant process. Stay tuned!

Hi, Tom. You are correct. It will recognize that you have already used that email to preregister. Just sign back in with your password and you can preregister your new address. So sorry for the confusion. We have a few safeguards in place that help prevent duplicate preregistrations, but it can make situations like yours a bit more difficult. If you're still having troubles drop me an email at becky.mashburn@dmea.com with your new address and the services you'd like to preregister for and we'll get you taken care of!

Adam Ator, The update as of this morning from our Executive staff that have been involved with the Grant process is that we are still waiting for the State to finalize. We are actively working with the them to finish it and move it along. Once we have the "green light", we will reach out to the zones included in the grant and move forward with building them. So stay tuned!!

Hi. I just had fiber installed in my home in zone 47. I plan on building a house in zone 55 (at a different address) & would like to preregister, but can't find a way to do that. Is it possible to do so? I don't have power to the building site yet.

Nathan, I sent a response to your email on 3/28/18 on this same question. Here is my response: I did some looking into your address. Your address falls into a different zone based on the electric feeder that it is fed from which is the Delta North 175 feeder. As we are building our fiber network out we are following our electric infrastructure. Therefore, some addresses are fed from a different electric feeder than others. Please be patient with us as we continue to build out our entire service territory, which approximately 4000 miles of fiber. It is not an easy task to build and we are doing it zone by zone to keep our costs low. We appreciate your support of the project and are anxious to get service to all 27,000 members within our DMEA territory. The part of H75 Rd you speak of, is fed from the substation that is at our DMEA Read office and is included in the electric feeder of OC104 based on the fiber and electric design. If you have any other questions, please call the office at 877-687-3632 and we can get you with our Outside Plant Manager to explain further. As I said in my email, we appreciate your support and are anxious to get service out to all of our service territory.

Hi Oogie, Still waiting on the state. You are correct. The appeals stage is complete, but we won't have a final word until the signed documents arrive from the state. The waiting is driving us batty! When we get the final word, we'll reach out to all the zones included in the grant. Stay tuned!

Hi, Barbara. We have moved on from the appeals stage and are not in a waiting period that is defined by the state. When we receive the final signed contract from the state we will reach out with more info. Until then, we’re waiting for more info too. Stay tuned! We hope to have the final word this month!

Hi, Steve. We totally missed your question. My apologies! We are currently building in Montrose 813 and approximately half of the zone is ready for in-home installs. Our construction team is working to get the second half ready, hopefully cutting done the overall build-out time of the zone. In general, it takes 4 to 6 months to build out an entire zone. Our scheduling team will reach out as soon as they receive word your property is ready for install. I'm sorry I don't have more specific information at this point in time!
