 Over the next few months, Green Hills Communications will continue construction on its underground fiber-optic network that is bringing an "Internet Revolution" to businesses in Chillicothe. Last year, the Breckenridge-based telecommunication company began a multi-phase fiber optic build out through the business corridors of Chillicothe. Phase 1 was completed earlier this year which installed a fiber optic loop to businesses along Washington Street between Highway 36 and the viaduct. Businesses north of the viaduct will soon have the same access to fiber with the completion of Phase 2 scheduled to be done this fall. The fiber path in Phase 2 will conclude at the intersection of Washington Street and Highway 190.
