Network Change Summary:

Wilkes Telephone Membership Corporation (Tri-County) d/b/a RiverStreet Networks (RiverStreet) has been overbuilding the copper network in the Sidney, NC exchange with fiber.  The Sidney exchange includes all customers served by the NPA-NXX 252-964.  The next phase will be to start deploying fiber loops to premises and deactivating copper facilities.

 

Description of type of changes planned:

Existing copper facilities used to serve customers in the Sidney, NC exchange as identified by the NPA-NXX 252-964 will be retired.  The Company has been in the process of overbuilding existing copper facilities with fiber facilities.  The next phase is to start deploying fiber loops to individual premises and retiring copper facilities in stages.

 

Description of Reasonably Foreseeable Impact of the Planned Changes:

After retirement of the copper facilities, RiverStreet will (1) no longer offer services over copper facilities; and (2) cease maintaining copper facilities.  All services previously provisioned over copper facilities to affected customers will continue over fiber facilities.

 

Description of any changes in prices, terms, or conditions that will accompany the planned changes:

Customers will not see a change in rates, terms and conditions of their service due to conversion from copper to fiber.  This impacts voice and broadband services.
