Broadband Expansion Project
Update: June 15, 2021
Town Administration is currently in contract negotiations with Consolidated Communications working out the nuts and bolts of the financial aspect of the project. Once the contract has been finalized, which we hope will be before the end of June, it will go to the Select Board for approval and signature. Then we'll begin the project planning phase.
Update: May 12, 2021
The voters of Peterborough overwhelmingly passed the Broadband Expansion warrant article on May 11, 2021. The next step in our process is contracting for the project with Consolidated Communications Inc, which will begin in a few weeks. Thanks to all who supported this important initiative!
The Town of Peterborough issued an RFP in early 2021 in order to solicit proposals from providers to expand broadband service to all addresses in town. The Select Board voted unanimously on March 2, 2021 to move forward with the proposal from Consolidated Communications, Inc. This expenditure will be included on the Town Warrant for voting on May 11, 2021.
Representatives from Consolidated Communications Inc. will be in attendance to answer questions received in advance from members of the community. Submit any questions in advance regarding broadband to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
