Is Fiber Coming to Your Neighborhood?

Fast-track your connection—find out if fiber optics are headed your way.

At Prairie Electric, we are committed to providing you with the latest technology to help streamline your busy life. In the age of the remote workplace and streaming Netflix to personal devices, nothing is more important than a fast internet service. However, for some, even broadband internet is no longer quick enough to meet their needs.

If you can relate to this dilemma, our team has a solution. Many neighborhoods in Portland and East Vancouver, including Granton Park and Dunning Meadows, are now installing fiber optic internet. If you live in one of these neighborhoods, or plan to, this means a higher quality web experience than you’ve ever encountered.

How Does Fiber Optic Internet Work?

Fiber optic internet is the fastest connection obtainable today. This type of connection transmits over 100 petabits of information per second, providing you with near-instantaneous connection to the web pages you need.

Fiber-optic lines are thin strands of optically pure glass that transport digital information over long distances. For communities in which fiber optic connections are an option, Prairie Electric partners with New Tradition Homes to offer tech packages included in the price of your home, pre-wired and complete with all the data and cable jacks you need to get and stay connected. New Tradition Homes has been a pioneer in Energy Star Building projects in our region for the last eight years, and has been serving our community for 26 years. We are proud to work with them to bring an ever-expanding group of communities the best connectivity available to date.

How Does Fiber Affect the Cost of My New Home?

It doesn’t! While eventually fiber optic internet will become the new standard, this service is currently available only in select areas. If fiber is available, we offer our tech packages free with the cost of your home, so you don’t have any additional worries besides unpacking and getting situated.

Fiber optic internet is the fastest online connection available today. Increasing communities in the Portland, OR, and Vancouver, WA, areas are now offering this connection, and our team is happy to work with you. Whether you work from home and need the speediest connection available, or just want to stream movies at lightning speed, you’ll love the fiber optic connection.
