Plumas-Sierra Telecommunications (PST) announced that on Aug. 5, work began to replace the existing coax system in parts of Quincy with fiber optics. The coax system is being replaced with fiber optics due to the poor condition of the system that PST acquired from New Day Broadband.
Customer installations are planned to begin in September with service offering speeds up to 1 gigabyte per second download. There will be multiple packages available, with the least cost package starting at $65 per month.
One area just being completed is the Bellamy Tract area where PST is about to schedule installations. PST is also changing out the New Day system south of Main Street, with the project bounded by Lindan Street to the east and the end of Jackson Street to the west.
Construction of the PST Fiber Optic Network will continue in the Chandler Road area after construction in the southern part of Quincy is complete.
Fiber optic service is already available for the businesses between Main and Lawrence streets.
