WiredWest is a cooperative of small towns in western Massachusetts dedicated to bringing affordable, reliable, high-speed Internet to those of us who have been without it. Chesterfield and 31 other towns are working together to build and operate a regional state-of-the-art fiber-optic network that will bring broadband Internet, digital phone, TV and more to our homes and businesses.
It’s up to us to make this happen. If we want to become a “Fiber Town” and be part of the WiredWest network, there are two things we have to do:
40% of the households in our Town must sign a conditional commitment for service and make a $49 deposit, to be applied to a customer’s first month’s bill.
The cost to build the network in these towns is an estimated $79 million. The State is contributing up to 40% of the funds, but the towns must provide the rest. A 2/3rd majority vote in a town meeting is needed to approve borrowing the funds each town must contribute as its portion of costs.
We must act together, now, to get broadband. Sign up here to help our town reach its 40% goal and become a Fiber Town: https://register.wiredwest.net/
