Powering the Region through Advanced Internet Connectivity

Municipalities across our region need effective and efficient ways to provide real-time communications, online resources, and public safety services to local citizens and visitors.

Towns of all sizes rely on our speed, redundancy and flexibility to provide critical services. OpenCape's 100% Fiber Optic Network already connects Community Anchor Institutions – Schools, Police, Fire, Emergency Medical Services, Public Safety Divisions, Departments of Public Works and Water Districts – in each of the 15 towns on the Cape. In addition, OpenCape provides connectivity to municipal and city networks in all 45 towns within our service footprint through the Municipal Wide Area Network (MWAN), which benefits towns by connecting multiple buildings at a significantly lower cost per unit.

  • Access vital information and online services quickly
  • Create a truly secure, customized solution so your municipal network will grow as your town grows
  • Enable full control of your networking environment
  • Extend your network reach into a Wide Area Network
