The easiest and fastest way to preregister for services is to enter in your physical address at join.gvtel.com to check service availability.
You can call to sign up. However, we will still need to verify your physical address located on the maps and this is how we will track potential customers when we begin plowing fiber. So, we prefer that you visit the site, as we want to make this process as convenient as possible for potential customers.
If at any time you need assistance, please visit our retail store located in TRF, Erskine or Bagley, or call our office at 800-448-8260, we would be happy to help.
