Spiral is building a Gigabit 100% fiber optic Internet network in western Nevada County. We will be connecting homes and businesses — from an underground network to be located along the roads — all the way to the premise.
We are building in areas where Comcast and Suddenlink do not provide service, as the access speeds those companies currently deliver are considered satisfactory by the California Public Utilities Commission, and hence not fundable. That still leaves a lot of territory to cover.
We have divided western Nevada County into three phases. The cost of building the first phase is about to be funded, in part, by a California Public Utilities Commission grant. The matching amount is being raised by private funds, and we want to show our investors that households are really interested in our new ultra fast service. In fact, we want to show that for all three phases that we’ve mapped.
No worries, we absolutely plan to build the next two phases. All of this will take time — about 5-7 years overall. But remember, we’re building a network that will be scalable and useable for 100 years.
So, this is how you come in. We need you to show us that you’re interested in our new service by (1) filling out the form on our Crowd Fiber website, and finding out if you’re located in the project areas we mapped, and (2) then showing your interest by sending us your contact information.
Sandy Jansen, our Neighborhood Coordinator, will be hosting informational meetings in your local community as we progress.
If you’re outside our mapped areas, then let us know that you have a neighborhood of people who want in. We will absolutely respond to your request, and see how we can fit you in.
So there is no need to do anything now, except to say you’re “in”. And no obligation by doing that.
It’s that easy.

We will be contacting businesses in our phase one project area soon.
