I described the Beckville Network HERE, an innovate way to access the VAST Fiber network which twists and winds through Western Nevada County’s rural neighborhoods. Does this fiber network come close to your area? See the map.
One essential item NOT on the map is the splice points, where a point-of-presence could easily be established by VAST for access to the fiber.
I am working on a map with more details, but one of the first items to add should be the potential access points.
Ten years ago I used my GPS to find all the AT&T DSL Remote Terminals by following the fiber cable and then recording the location using the GPS for plotting on a digital map. If interested in starting a network, drive the route and spot the splice point vaults. Wish I had a photo to show you what to look for.
Any interest in developing a plan for your neighborhood? Leave a comment with contact information.
