I am also curious about the time-line for the Troy zone. I completely understand the reason behind the participation goals and using that as a guide to decide the order of build-outs. It appears that most zones have reached the goals needed and those zone that have not yet reached the goal are very close to doing so. I signed up for this back in 2017 and I had hoped that by now we would be much closer to having this service than we are. Troy reached its goal in July of 2020, same time as Woodland Mills - but Woodland Mills zone is nearing completion and Troy zone (according to this website) hasn't even been scheduled for engineering yet. I understand this is a MAJOR project and very expensive I am sure. I am no rocket scientist, but in my feeble opinion - the faster folks are hooked up, the faster Gibson Connect can start getting a return on the investment. I also fully believe that once service is available in an area, households that might not have signed up for the service initially will get on board with the service from Gibson Connect and therefore boost the investment return. My point being - maybe additional contractors to get this completed faster could not only get the build-out done, but allow Gibson Connect to start recouping costs faster.
