A big reason why our residential fiber optic gig-speed internet is so affordable - just $74.95/month - is that we aren’t obligated to stockholders. All our value is delivered to you: It’s your gig!
Our engineers and technicians partnered with the primary state authority (the Mass Broadband Institute) involved with providing high-speed internet access for towns like South Hadley over a decade ago. These long-standing partnerships have helped us gain the technical expertise necessary to install, operate, and support gig-speed fiber internet service.
South Hadley is already benefitting from the installation of the fiber network through efficiencies gained by town facilities currently getting internet service from the network. This includes the majority of municipal entities, public schools, and the majority of town departments. Most of the physical and personnel assets necessary to fulfill the role of internet service provider are already in place at SHELD; this will reduce duplication and help keep pricing highly competitive.
