Additional information regarding the GLE project is available at http://www.gtlakes.com/blog/.

Work is scheduled to begin April 11 in the Petoskey area with plans to expand to Charlevoix (Hayes Township) and Cheboygan Counties. We are very excited to be part of this project and look forward to our residents having access to high speed internet.
