About Our Projects:

Benton has had crews dispatched in over 30 states and three time zones in the United States. In 2021 alone, our crews built over 2,600 miles of fiber across our construction projects. We are always improving skill sets and knowledge of industry standards to ensure the goals of our customers are met in full. Benton continues to grow and every year we help connect more families and communities to reliable fiber-optic broadband networks.

Hitting ground first in October 2022 with underground construction, Benton's newest build is in partnership with Ocmulgee EMC. Aerial construction began in November 2022 and is off to a great start! The rate of new construction will be ramping up to 20 miles a week. We look forward to continuing the build.

Having launched in January 2021, Benton took on multi-phase construction for Canadian Valley Electric's fiber network. We have built 120 miles of underground and 1,600 miles of aerial fiber in 18 months. We have complete both phase 1 and 2, currently working on phase 3. Benton was able to implement our new "all-in-one" installation process on this project which helped to improve their member's experience. We also handle ongoing plant maintenance as we continue the build.

In Upstate new York, Benton worked with Conexon and in partnership with Otsego Electric Cooperative, on an FTTH project encompassing both the outside plant construction, splicing, and drop installation of over 800 miles of designed plant. We successfully built over 745 miles of Aerial Fiber construction and splicing, along with 1,600 drops constructed in just over 24 months. We consistently remained ahead of project schedules and goals.

In January 2021, Benton joined the Tombigbee Electric Power Association's fiber-optic network build. Benton was called in to bring the build's schedule back on track as it had fallen behind on schedule. In just 24 months, we constructed over 3,000 miles of FTTP plant. We continually stayed ahead of our predicted timeline, allowing us to close out the final phase of the Tombigbee member footprint an entire year early. We're currently working on Tombigbee's off system project and looking forward to wrapping up the project by the end of 2022.
