Golden West Telecommunica-tions is excavating ground, drilling new cable paths and laying new cable in Philip.
The current construction project, which is expected to be complete by mid-July, includes burying copper, coax, and fiber optic cables. Westcott Construction Company, Inc. is working with Golden West on the project.
According to Tom Finn with Golden West, the work is a backup to current cable routes. If communication lines were ever for some reason to fail, the system would be able to be re-routed so that little if any loss of service would be noticed.
