How Greenlight Districts are Identified and Built

  1. Residents sign-up at GreenlightNetworks.com to show interest in their neighborhood.
  2. The Greenlight engineering team performs an initial study. This study includes looking at the cost and complexity of building the district, how many easements are required, what permits need to be obtained from the municipality and for which utility poles Greenlight needs to apply.
  3. Greenlight district is added to our construction schedule.
  4. Once the study is complete, the engineering process begins in select districts, utility poles are applied for and needs for easements are identified.
  5. Greenlight team works with residents in neighborhood to obtain easements as well as work with the utility pole owners to prepare space on the utility poles for our fiber.
  6. Greenlight starts accepting pre-orders in a new district and notifies residents who have signed-up via email.
  7. Permits are obtained from the necessary organizations.
  8. Construction of fiber-optic network begins.
  9. In-home installation appointments are scheduled.
  10. You now have Greenlight’s 100x faster internet!

The map shows the pre-order progress, construction status, and service availability of our Greenlight Districts. Here is what each status level represents:

Assessing Interest – Tracking interest in your neighborhood. Where we build and when is based on many factors including customer demand, cost, and complexity of building the district, and the number of easements and permits required.

Under Evaluation – We are currently evaluating the network design and engineering specifications, construction costs and conditions, as well as permits and easement requirements for your district.

Accepting Pre-Orders – We are accepting pre-orders in your district. We are currently evaluating the network design and engineering specifications, construction costs, and conditions, as well as permits and easement requirements for your district.

2022 Construction – We have announced our construction schedule for 2022 and your district is on the list! We are accepting pre-orders for your district. Our team is working to obtain easements and permits required for construction as well as preparing the utility poles in your neighborhood for our fiber. We do not have an exact date of when construction will begin, but we will email updates to you as progress continues in your district.

Construction in Progress – Our construction team is building our fiber-optic network in your neighborhood. This includes aerial construction (attaching fiber to the utility poles in your neighborhood) and underground construction (installing conduit and fiber-optic cable along an underground path in the town right of way using a surface launched drilling rig.) Learn more about how a fiber-optic network is built. Be sure to place your order to be installed while our construction team is in the neighborhood.
