DayStarr Communications of Owosso is now working on a new service area in northwest Owosso, continuing its million dollar-plus investment in communications infrastructure in the city.
Up to 1000M of fiber Internet, TV and phone services will soon be available across the river along parts of Chipman Street. The area under construction starts just north of King Street and on the side streets east of Center Street, then goes north to North Street.
For those wondering if they qualify, the company has a service availability map on its website, daystarrfiber.net.
Fiber networks allow for the delivery of up to one gigabit or more of data per second to users. This allows customers to download movies in seconds and can provide a better online gaming experience with speeds unequaled by any local competitor. It also means virtually uninterrupted Internet service for everyone, from casual web surfers and e-mail users to traditional and home-based businesses.
Cable television is provided over DayStarr’s own fiber network through a partnership with TVC, a division of Lennon Telephone Company. Bundles of phone, Internet and TV are available along with customer service from local people. Watch TV Everywhere is included at no charge with TV service and allows users to watch many TV channels on a computer or mobile device.
“We plan to work as long as the weather is in our favor. We want to encourage everyone who is interested to use the service availability tool on our website, call us, or comment on our Facebook page so we know where demand is the highest,” says Collin Rose, president of DayStarr.
DayStarr began servicing business customers with its fiber network in 2006 and started expanding the network to residential customers in 2014. The network now passes thousands of homes and businesses and will expand neighborhood by neighborhood over the next few years based on demand.

CORUNNA COUPLE ARRESTED IN CHILD ABUSE CASE OF 6 MONTH OLD TWINS
Parents Jailed Following 6+ Month Investigation Involving Abuse of Infants
Shiawassee County Sheriff's Office
In May 2017 the Shiawassee County Detective Bureau opened an investigation in a suspected child abuse case of 6 month old twin babies. Detectives responded to Hurley Medical Center at the request of the Corunna Police Department for the suspected case of child abuse.
Both infants had sustained multiple fractures and one of the infants had an acute broken femur, which detectives believe was caused by the parents of the infants while in their care.
