Valley Telecom Thatcher groundbreaking is Monday

THATCHER — To celebrate its expansion into Thatcher, Valley Telecom will conduct a ceremonial groundbreaking.

The groundbreaking will take place Monday, May 17, at 10 a.m., at the new Thatcher Recreation Complex, with construction to begin immediately thereafter.

 “The target date to finish is around mid-March of next year. So about 10 months to get it all done, and we’re talking about the entire town, all the way down to Daley Estates. Everybody,” said Valley Telecom’s Bob Dahlstrom.

Valley Telecom, and its construction contractor Mears, will be installing 108 miles of fiber throughout the community.
