AT&T Fiber Digging in Coral Springs FL

Several months ago AT&T dug up our entire neighborhood. They installed very large in ground boxes in several yards, including mine. (I'd say these are 1.5x to 2x the size of the water meter box) Rumor was they were finally installing Fiber here. However, we still only have AT&T DSL available several months later.  How do I find a timeline for rollout for Fiber here, or if this was even a Fiber installation? Seems like a lot of work if it wasn't, we haven't seen any improvements to our existing ATT "100mb" service either despite all this work/digging. This took place in Coral Springs FL in the area of Wiles Road and Rock Island Road. (33065 zip) Thanks.

That was definitely fiber that they installed. It was one part of the overall process. Your part of the neighborhood may have been done early, but they were still digging around that area to place more pieces of the fiber infrastructure as of a few weeks ago. No one can provide an absolute time frame; the short answer is it will be done when it's done. You'll know when it's ready for use because you will start getting notifications encouraging you to set an appointment for fiber installation. This will involve a technician coming to your house, running a fiber line from the ground box outside to your house, placing a new box on the exterior wall of your house, and then running a fiber line from there into your house and setting up the new fiber equipment inside. They are very eager to start using the expensive new fiber they install in neighborhoods so just have patience and know that it probably won't be too much longer.
