As many of you are aware, Sandhill has been very active installing Fiber to the Home services in the town limits of Chesterfield.  To date we have about 150 homes connected to fiber service with more being added every day.   We are anticipating beginning fiber installation in the Pageland area before the end of this year.   For those Members in more rural areas, we’re busy upgrading your services as well.   Recently, our crews have been working near Central High School adding new equipment with hopes of installing 3 or 4 more cabinet locations around the county before the end of the year.   While the cabinets will not provide fiber service to the homes yet, they have a huge impact on broadband speeds for Members that live nearby.   All of these improvements both in towns and in the county are part of our long term plan to provide fiber availability to all homes in our territory.   Please check our website and our Facebook page each month as we continue to provide updates.

In other news, football season is back!  If you subscribe to Sandhill TV, you can catch the game of the week’s live audio stream on Cooperative Channel 2 courtesy of our partnership with Pee Dee Broadcasting.  Also, we have exciting news about our Sandhill wireless services, both on prepaid and postpaid.   If you’ve never considered Sandhill for your wireless service or if you are nearing the end of your contract with your current provider, now would be the time to check into one of our offices to get more information on our special promotions on the latest phones.

This time of year as school starts back up and summer is gone, many businesses start preparing for the upcoming holiday season.   Here at Sandhill, our customer service representatives and field technicians are continuing the work of improving services no matter the time of year.   Thank you for being a Member of Sandhill and as always, please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
