OpenCape envisions a future when widespread and reliable network coverage is the driving force for commerce, new economic centers and business growth that is developed from Cape Cod to New Bedford to Providence. This development will revolutionize the way we work and live - from historic commuting patterns, to advanced home monitoring and telehealth applications, allowing senior citizens to remain in their homes longer by connecting through the network to their healthcare providers.
But there’s more to being a fiber community than just the services the network offers. The money people spend for these services will stay in the local economy. There will be more professional opportunities here, and our home businesses will be more productive. The value of your property will increase by having high-speed Internet available. Our schools will be able to take full advantage of the Internet to educate our kids when they have high-speed access at home.
Fiber truly is the pathway to a better future for our communities. Let’s take it!
