City and Point Broadband Fiber-Optic Construction

The City, in conjunction with Point Broadband, is beginning construction on a 100% fiber-optic network in Springboro.  Residents can expect to see construction teams in and around neighborhoods completing both aerial and underground work.

They are working in the area on main roads now (SR 741, SR 73, Lytle-Five Points, Pennyroyal, etc.), and neighborhoods.  

Point Broadband has a website dedicated to addressing any questions of concerns residents may have about the construction process.  Visit point-broadband.com/construction for more information.

We also have a FAQ page as well as a press release introducing Point Broadband and what services they will offer.

Information on work areas will be provided on this page as it become available so feel free to check back often.

Please view the City's Fiber Master Plan

Guide to Fiber Optic Infrastructure Construction--Point Broadband

As Point Broadband continues their fiber optic infrastructure extensions further into Springboro neighborhoods, here are some tips concerning what to watch for on your property and who to call in case you find damage.

1.    Extensions of fiber optics into the neighborhoods is being done by Point Broadband as their private enterprises’ project.  Any private utility (internet, electric, etc.) has legal right to utilize the ROW (Right of Way) or utility easement on the front of residents’ property. Most-- if not all-- properties in Springboro have a 10 to 20 foot utility easement on the property which typically runs parallel to the sidewalk, if one exists. If you do not have a sidewalk in front of your property, it is typically right next to the road.

2.  If Point Broadband damages an underground line, irrigation pipe, invisible fence, electric line, etc., on your property in the easement –call their Customer Service number, 844-407-6468. They will come back to fix the issue.

3. If you are aware of a private invisible fence line, irrigation pipe, etc., in the utility easement – please indicate that location with flags, paint markings or somehow identify the underground line/pipe.  If it isn’t marked – Point will not know it is there.
