An important message from Julie Dolan, chair of the Sandwich Broadband Advisory Committee:
Exciting news: Sandwich is one of 58 towns that has received a letter from the NH Electric Co-op’s new broadband subsidiary announcing its plans to move ahead full speed to begin building fiber-optic networks to serve thousands of rural residents who now lack good internet service.
The new nonprofit company, called NH Broadband, will make decisions by this spring about which areas will be first to get wired up. Altogether, the 58 towns involve hanging 2,000 miles of fiber-optic cable, so it can’t all be done in one go.
As chair of our Broadband Advisory Committee, I’m asking you to help us make the case that Sandwich should be among the first towns. If you’d like to tell NH Broadband you’d be interested in their broadband service, click on this link: http://www.sandwichnh.org/boards_and_committees/broadband_committee.php Even if you’re an Eversource customer, please fill out the form. If you want to read the NHBB letter in its entirety, click on this: http://cms6.revize.com/revize/sandwich/NHEC%20Broadband%20Update.pdf
An expression of interest does not obligate you to anything. But it’s the most important thing you can do to advance our cause. In making its decisions NH Broadband needs an idea of how many households and businesses might subscribe.
We may remind you again to make sure everybody who might want to register interest gets recorded. Please act now. And urge your neighbors who may not have seen this post. Each one of you can make a difference!
