Project Description:

In 2012, Butler Telephone Company hired World Fiber Technologies, Inc. to perform aerial and buried outside plant construction services in Clarke and Choctaw counties in Alabama.

World Fiber mobilized our company owned fleet to install and replace 80.14 miles of fiber optic cable and conduit overhead and 12.36 miles underground. The project includes splicing, termination and pull boxes as well as 51 aerial service entrances, 13 buried service entrances, 10 housing units, 8 serving area interface cabinets (SAIC), 6 fiber optic housing units, 20 hand holes and power service.

World Fiber tapped in to our vast vendor network to meet Butler Telephone Company’s “Buy American Act” requirements thus procuring all American made materials.
