What We Know About Fiber-To-Your-Home: Consolidated Communications has announced a Peninsula-wide project to install high-speed fiber broadband to every home in Sedgwick.  We will update information as it is available. Here is what we know now: Consolidated will run fiber to all homes, including private roads, if there is a path, conduit with room, or a pole line, and it is safe to use. Consolidated will set a pole(s), if a homeowner does not want conduit; however, Consolidated will charge a fee for each pole subject to Consolidated engineering approval. Construction is likely to begin late summer or early fall.  To receive email updates:  Additional information available at Fidium website, by calling the Town Office, or visit
