Fiber FAQs

One word: speed. If you want the fastest Internet possible, you need fiber. Other benefits include unlimited data; lower latency (or delay in data transfer); equal upload and download speeds; reliability; and increased property value for your home or business.

A NID (Network Interface Device) is the equipment that will be placed on the outside of your home or business connecting you to the Nuvera network.

A telecommunications pedestal is a metal or plastic box that grants access to underground fiber optic cable for technicians. A pedestal allows technicians to quickly and easily access fiber for splicing and other vital actions needed for implementing or repairing the connection to your home.

An Optical Network Terminal (ONT) is the conduit to the Internet for fiber technology, similar to how a modem is the conduit for a DSL Internet connection. When you sign up for fiber Internet, an ONT will be placed inside your house by a Nuvera technician.

In the majority of cases, customers are required to use a Nuvera modem. Our goal is to give you the best Internet experience possible, and our specially dedicated modem is part of the system that will achieve that goal.

No, the Nuvera modem does not deliver Wi-Fi and a separate router will be required. The router broadcasts the Wi-Fi signal, bringing the Internet to your devices. For an additional small monthly fee, Nuvera Home Wi-Fi can be implemented and managed in your home, taking the work out of managing and maintaining your home Wi-Fi setup. Add Nuvera IQ to Home Wi-Fi and you can customize your home network to your specific needs with just a few taps from your phone.

Fiber Internet affords benefits such as faster speeds, unlimited data; lower latency (or delay in data transfer); equal upload and download speeds; reliability; and increased property value for your home or business.

1 Gig is equal to 1000 Mbps and is the fastest Internet speed available.

Deciding how much speed is necessary for your household, ask the following questions: How many people use the Internet at the same time? How many devices are generally being used at the same time? What are those devices being used for – i.e. gaming, streaming, surfing? The more users and devices on the network, the faster the speed you will require for the best Internet experience.

Nuvera will indicate in the right-of-ways where the fiber will be placed. Flags or paint markings will be placed. All public utilities in the construction areas will be marked by the respective utility company. Please do not remove any flags or paint markings. Flags will be removed after construction is complete and paint markings will fade on their own.

Nuvera will restore any disruption to your lawn/landscaping after fiber is buried to your home. This will be a two-part process:

  • First step is to fill holes with sand, which allows time for settling before final restoration while making the construction area safe for children, pets, etc.
  • Next step is for the contractor to return and complete the site restoration after construction is complete. This includes filling the impacted areas with black dirt/topsoil and grass seed.

Homeowners are responsible for locating and marking any private underground facilities such as: invisible fencing, irrigation lines, private power, etc. For more information, go to https://www.gopherstateonecall.org/homeowners.

In the unlikely event that there is a significant disruption to your property, Nuvera guarantees the restoration of any landscaping, etc.

In order to take advantage of fiber Internet, you will need fiber equipment installed at your house. Nuvera’s crews and our construction partners will install all the equipment needed to implement fiber Internet in your home. If the equipment is installed during our construction phase, there is no charge to the property owner.

Installation of the fiber facilities and equipment will be free if done during our construction phase. Current customers are required to transition to our new fiber network and will be done at no charge.

It is best to have the fiber equipment installed when our crews are in your area. Service must be established within 60 days of becoming available or a $250 construction fee will be charged. If our crew does not install the fiber equipment at the same time as the rest of your neighborhood and you decide at some point in the future you want to move ahead with Nuvera high-speed fiber Internet, you can call our office and schedule a time for our crew to come back out and complete the line to your home. A $250 construction fee will apply or will be waived if you commit to a 2-year agreement.
