Installation Questions

Installation comes in two phases. First, we need to install the fiber optic cable in the ground on your property. This part of the installation is minimally disruptive, however, we will have to dig a small line in order to get the cable to your home.

Once the necessary infrastructure is in place, all that’s left to do is to set up your equipment and get your fiber internet hooked up.

Once the infrastructure is installed on your property, setting up your internet should take approximately 90 minutes.

If you’d like to have one of our technicians install your box for you, we charge a one-time fee. This fee will not apply if you choose to hook up your box yourself.

Tether will give you everything you need for set up. If you’d like to set up your internet service yourself, we will run your cable inside, leaving you with a spool and a connector. Once your box ships to your home or office, all you need to do is connect the box to the cable.
