Supporting New Learning Formats through Advanced Internet Connectivity

Now more than ever, connecting teachers and students reliably and effectively to our far-reaching backbone is vital to the long term success of education at all levels within our communities.

Technology is key for education, and OpenCape is leading the way. We are constantly working with K-12 schools, colleges, universities and research institutions across the region to help bridge the broadband divide that can hold back those students who do not have adequate and reliable high-speed internet.

In addition to connecting public and private schools across Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts, OpenCape is capable of supporting new learning formats as the use of digital tools for remote and hybrid education continues to grow. OpenCape regularly works in partnership with schools and other educational organizations to:

  • Build connections for schools and communities at discounted fees
  • Expand access to digital tools for remote and hybrid education
  • Seek Distance Learning Funding through government grants

Case Studies

Bridgewater State College

Bridgewater State University Connects to OpenCape

Bridgewater State University needed to ensure reliable connectivity for its students because many university courses have online, cloud-based, or video components. In fact, nearly every school OpenCape serves requests more bandwidth each year, reports the Bridgewater Wicked Local.
