You too can advocate for Internet Connectivity in your community!
Governor Baker has recently signed the IT Bond Bill, which includes $1.7M in funds allocated for OpenCape Fiber connectivity projects on the Cape & Islands.
Dozens of OpenCape supporters and customers have since urged the Governor to release these dollars. They have added their voices to advocate for Internet Connectivity projects throughout Cape Cod and the Islands.
Won’t you join them in reaching out to Governor Baker and letting him know how vital high-speed internet is to our economy?
The key initiatives included in the Bill include:
- Main Street Fiber Internet Initiatives in Provincetown and Chatham
- Strategic extensions of the OpenCape fiber backbone in Wellfleet, Truro and Eastham,
- Enhanced fiber extension on Falmouth’s Main Street.
- Fiber expansion strategic planning for Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket
We are encouraging residents of the Cape and Islands to share their support for better Internet connectivity and to SPECIFICALLY request that Governor Baker release the $1.7 Million for OpenCape that has been allocated in the IT Bond Bill.
As soon as these funds are released, OpenCape can begin to move forward immediately with these exciting and innovative projects that address crucial areas of economic and quality of life concerns for the Cape and Islands.
