While once the internet was seen as something of a novelty, over the years it has become an increasingly important utility for everyone, from corporate executives all the way down to schoolchildren. We use the internet to perform more and more tasks–people use it to study, to shop, to stay informed, and above all, to stay connected to colleagues, teachers, and loved ones. Because internet access has become so essential to modern life, it is only natural to want to ensure that you have the fast, reliable connection you need. In our experience here at GP Associates, Inc., the best way to get the robust network and reliable connectivity you are looking for is to install an underground fiber optic network. Our experts have worked on countless underground fiber installation projects, and we encourage you to give us a call to find out more about how we can help you.
Installing fiber optic cables underground offers a number of serious advantages over using aerial cables. Traditional utility poles and their cables are vulnerable to all kinds of adverse weather conditions, such as high winds, lightning, fallen trees, and more. On top of that, they can also be damaged as a result of human carelessness, such as drivers colliding with utility poles and knocking them down. If you want to make sure that your internet connection is as reliable as possible, underground installation is the best way to go.
One of the main reasons why people hesitate to proceed with underground fiber installation, even when they recognize the many advantages of underground vs. aerial cables, is that they think that the only way to install underground cables is with traditional excavation, which is sure to take a long time and create a lot of mess. Fortunately, our team has over 33 years of experience in this industry, and we are committed to finding solutions to all of these logistical problems–what’s more, we have perfected a variety of techniques that allow us to install your new underground cables as quickly and with as little mess as possible. Our methods include directional boring and hydro-excavation, both of which dig tunnels underground without disturbing the surface, so we won’t have to dig up your lawn in order to lay your new cables. Instead, we can feed the cables through their new tunnels and then cover the small holes, leaving your landscape looking virtually untouched. On top of this, our hydro-excavation services in particular allow us to bore the necessary tunnels without having to worry about damaging any existing underground utilities–the jets of water are strong enough to move the dirt, but not powerful enough to harm your power lines, plumbing, or anything else that’s already buried.

We have received many questions about these services in our time, so we have put together a few of the most frequently asked queries for you to check out.
What are the benefits of underground fiber installation?
Installing fiber optic cables underground offers several advantages over installing them on aerial poles. First, underground installation will help shield your cables from damage, as they will not be exposed to high winds or severe weather. Second, it will help you save space, as you won’t have to install support poles. Third, underground installation does not create the visual “noise” of aerial utilities and will help preserve your view.
How does underground fiber installation work?
Our team has extensive experience in underground fiber installation, and we may use several different methods to get the job done, depending on the conditions of your site. For example, we may use directional boring to drill underground tunnels for your cables, or we may use hydrovac excavation in cases where we need to worry about keeping other underground utilities intact. In general, however, we will start by surveying your property and marking the location of underground obstacles. Then we’ll dig, drill, or bore the holes and finally install your cables and connect them to your network.
