The first customers in the area near Martin Middle School and Martin Assembly of God should connect to high-speed fiber internet sometime this month.
The area is on the west side of Martin and in the second zone, called the church zone, in WK&T’s Fiber for Martin project.
WK&T crews have installed underground pipe and now are working to connect fiber to the remote building, located near Martin Assembly of God, that ties the area to the high-speed network.
The first section of the project in the area of North Lindell Street to the city limits is complete. Sales representatives are in the area and can provide information and sign up customers.
Customers also can sign up at the WK&T office at 207 S. Lindell St. and learn about services, pay bills or receive technical support. They can also receive additional information about the fiber project in Martin.
WK&T Telecommunications has a collaborative project with the city of Martin to build a cutting-edge fiber optic network within the city limits during the next several months. The project ties the city of Martin to WK&T’s existing fiber network in Fulton.
