GovernmentThe communications business framework has changed swiftly the last several years with the rapidly expanding race to place fiber optic cable. One of the largest infusions of capital that has fueled this expansion has been the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. It included $7.2 billion to develop and expand broadband services to unserved and underserved areas and improve access to broadband by public safety agencies. Whether it has been the Rural Utility Services bringing modern services to previously untouched areas, or large communications groups expanding their services and interconnecting the existing plant with fiber optics, stimulus money has been invaluable.
GTS has not been left behind, as some of our largest projects over the last five years have come as a result of stimulus dollars. GTS took part in an introductory fiber network that runs throughout Mississippi, connecting local government services buildings, hospitals, libraries, utility networks, and most importantly Mississippi school systems. This network provided high speed internet services that was 100 times faster than prior network capacity. GTS placed over 600 miles of aerial and underground fiber optic plant. Contact Us
TDS - Telecom has been another great partner with GTS. After several years of completing standard projects for the telephone provider out of Wisconsin, GTS was awarded two of TDS' nearly 60 stimulus projects going on nationwide. This was a bold initiative by TDS, considering all these projects were going on simultaneously, and completed within less than three years. GTS' part was very unique in the fact that one project was primarily underground, while the other was mostly aerial. This is a prime example of showing the diversity that has helped build our business. One project was based in Centre, AL, and GTS built approximately 60 miles of underground conduit and fiber plant. This was done to extend TDS' network capacity to rural areas, as well as upgrade part of their existing plant. As for the fiber portion, GTS installed 22 new DSA sites with power connections. Our other project was located in Leslie County, KY. It also called for 22 new DSA sites, but alternatively GTS placed just over 100 miles of new aerial fiber plant.

Lastly, GTS was able to help in a more localized capacity, as one partner with Columbia County, GA. GTS was awarded three of the six phases of a fiber network ring built exclusively for county services. This project encompassed providing fiber connectivity to all the county's service buildings, government complexes, judicial offices, fire and sheriff department, and all the county schools and offices. While GTS completed over 80 miles of underground fiber plant, we also exclusively placed all the interior plant connection inside each building to complete installation, fiber splicing, testing, and turn up.
