GLE Truestream Fiber Network coming to Newaygo County

Great Lakes Energy (GLE) is expanding its Truestream fiber network further into parts of its Newaygo service area. Mainline construction in the region had been on hold over the last 17 months while awaiting approval of federal forest service permits. With approval now granted, construction will begin in the spring, enabling crews to connect fiber internet and voice services to homes as soon as the fall of 2022. GLE members who register by March 18 and complete the necessary paperwork by April 8 will receive priority for construction and will qualify for free in-home installation, a $149 value.

 

The fiber network delivers speeds up to 1 Gig (symmetrical for upload and download), massive bandwidth, unlimited internet and voice services, no data caps, and no contracts, allowing for residents to work from home, have access to online education in addition to streaming, gaming and much more. The service will also be available to businesses.

 

Truestream is exclusively available to Great Lakes Energy electric cooperative members. The Newaygo service district encompasses rural areas served by Great Lakes Energy’s electric service in parts of Kent, Mecosta, Montcalm, Muskegon, and Newaygo counties. Construction is a multi-step, multi-year process, which includes building a mainline fiber trunk through GLE’s Newaygo service area. Members are encouraged to pre-register their interest on truestreamfiber.com to take advantage of free in-home installation, and to avoid wait times for construction as well as in-home installation.

 

More than 11,900 Great Lakes Energy members in parts of Allegan, Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Emmet, Oceana, and Otsego counties are currently enjoying Truestream’s life-changing services, some experiencing a high-speed internet connection at home for the first time.

 

Great Lakes Energy members can visit truestreamfiber.com to register interest and to enter their address in an interactive status map for construction progress or projections as it relates to their location.
