Fioptic Survey
Dear Montgomery Towne Residents,
 
Carol Webb (Property Manager) and Gail Rodgers (Board of Trustees President) met with Cincinnati Bell on Wednesday, August 4th.  We discussed the possibility of installing Fiber Optics in our Montgomery Towne Community.  We discussed the possibility of installing Fiber Optics in our Montgomery Towne Community.  Cincinnati Bell assured us that it would be installed here at some point in the future.  They wanted to look at our property and the current coax cable connections to the units.  They needed to do a cost analysis before they can project a date for installation.  They are tentatively thinking it would be late 2022 or early 2023.  The cost for the base Fiber Optics is around $50/month for each residence that signs up.
 
They did offer us another solution to get it installed sooner.  If we are willing, as a community, to have fiber optics installed and connected in every unit, they would offer us a discounted price of $37.00/month per unit for 250 mbps base internet service and it would be installed immediately.  This would be a Five Year contract with a locked in price.  Each resident would also have the option to upgrade to a faster (up to 1 Gbps) speed internet or adding on FIOS TV service.  
 
The Board will use this survey to gauge the level of community interest to determine if we should participate in the program being offered by Cincinnati Bell.
