OSTRANDER SOUTH NEIGHBORS....So after calling I understand this whole thing a lot better. ***CC Fiber wants 250 people in Ostrander South to pay the $150 install fee*** before starting construction. ***There are 57 people registered in our area and so far only 27 people have paid***. If we are serious about wanting faster internet we each need to pay the up front install fee. ***We need to proactively convince 193 other people to register and pay the install fee and then construction will begin. ***
SKEPTICAL & HESITANT LIKE ME? Convincing 200 homes in an area of 450-500 homes to front $150 seems crazy, but anyone who has satelite internet will agree its totally worth the risk!!! (especially if you have experience with that HN company). I did confirm CC Fiber will refund your $150 if you back out before construction starts so that helps... But they also confirmed if we do not get into the first "pre-order group" the install fee will be significantly more when you see your neighbors on hi speed and want to join and that is another good reason to get on the first train. I also think if we can get the progress bar from 10% to 50% or more... people will be less hesitant to join and progress may grow faster.
So...Who of us registered people right now are willing to take that first step of paying the $150 deposit and reaching out to neighbors to join?!?!
