Bristol’s High Speed Internet: Getting to Know Hub 66January 28, 2022 1:15 pm
In 2021, the Town of Bristol and the Bristol Broadband Now initiative launched a new broadband service, provided by Hub66. Here Bruce Dorner sits down with Hub66 for an informative chat about their services in Bristol.
To learn more about this innovative public/private partnership, read our announcement, “Bristol Officially Launches Its High-Speed Internet Service.”
About Bristol’s High-Speed Internet Provider
Hub66 is offering fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) internet service to the roughly 400 homes located on the phase one route. Those eligible in the first phase will be notified by mail with details on how to sign up. This service area will continue to expand throughout town over the next five years providing fiber and wireless internet to the whole community. Hub66 will notify residents and businesses when they will be added and provide them with information about available services.
The next step is to take this initiative and expand it beyond Bristol’s borders. Bristol Broadband Now was awarded a grant with the Town of Hebron to create the next leg of a regional high-speed internet corridor that runs north to Plymouth, south down Route 3A, and back to Bristol. Concurrently, Coates is chairing the Grafton County Broadband Committee that is planning to build the network to every Town Hall in Grafton County through an $26.2 million infrastructure investment and future builds throughout each municipality.
