Thief River Falls Expansion

Garden Valley Technologies is excited to extend its fiber optic networks and offer products and services to residential and business customers located in the city of Thief River Falls. Construction on this large project began in the spring of 2020 and is estimated to wrap-up in the summer of 2021. GVT has divided the project up into nine zones with an estimated 3,500 fiber drops for service. The company anticipates having 2,500 of the 3,500 drops complete by the end of 2020. The remaining 1,000 drops will primarily be in zones 3, 4, 7 and 8 and will be completed in the summer of 2021.

Please extend my heartfelt “thank you”...

[Garden Valley Technologies left] my property without any visible sign that they were even there.  Any holes that were made were covered up so well that it would be difficult to locate again.  This may seem like a small thing but I assure you that people like me appreciate this attention to detail.
