Fibre-optic internet is coming to Norwich.
Execulink Telecom will be installing the high-speed internet, phone and digital cable lines beginning in October to replace the existing and out-dated infrastructure which means that every home in the village will be able to have access to the 'next generation of massive speeds,' according to Execulink CEO Ian Stevens, who gave a presentation of the company's proposed upgrade to Norwich Township council members Tuesday, September 11.
A temporary storefront on the corner of Main and Stover Streets in the village will be open starting in October and throughout the entire construction of the fibre infrastructure, which should be completed in May, to answer questions and provide more information about the project for residents.
Residents will have the choice to purchase Execulink's services – which will include bundles for internet, phone and cable – and receive free hook-up during the construction period, or decline service. Stevens told council members that the lines would be readily accessible to all homes even if the home owners opt out initially, making it easier to connect to the services in the future.
