Rural Massachusetts communities still without high speed internet may get help, as state lawmakers aim to pass a bill to pay for a final stretch of broadband.
A fiber-optic network that’s now under constriction has begun to provide high-speed internet to some under-served parts of western Massachusetts.
More than 100,000 feet of fiber-optic cable was delivered to West Springfield, Massachusetts today. It will be installed as the so-called "backbone" of a project that aims to expand high-speed Internet access in western and north central Massachusetts.
