If you are a resident of Princeton, MA, you are probably all too aware of the limitations that town residents all face when it comes to accessing the internet. In fact, Princeton is considered an “underserved community” by the FCC. Slow connection speeds prevent us from effectively participating in online opportunities that other communities around us take for granted, such as:
- Educational opportunities
- Working from home
- Online entertainment (Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Amazon, etc.)
- Healthcare networks and telemedicine capabilities
- Access to Facebook, InstaGram, Twitter, and other social media
- Online gaming (Xbox, Playstation, Wii)
- News, books and more
The objective of the Princeton Broadband Committee is to develop a plan that will make it possible for every resident in Princeton, MA to experience ultrafast and afford internet service. As a result of a statewide initiative to bring a high-speed fiber optic network to rural and underserved communities, Princeton is now well positioned to finishing the job and delivering that network to into every home. So, let’s work together and make it happen.
In our recent townwide survey, we asked the citizens if they wanted ultrafast, affordable internet. The response, shown in the infographic below, was loud and clear. Let’s make it happen!
