In just three years from the fiber optic network going live, OpenCape is now powering 74% of the high schools on the Cape and a growing number off Cape. We are also powering a significant number of middle and elementary schools and college programs on-cape plus Bridgewater State University and Massasoit Community College off Cape.
The OpenCape fiber optic network gives schools, colleges and research facilities flexibility and network capabilities previously unavailable. This will open the door for numerous opportunities and cutting-edge technologies, enabling the education field to better serve its students.
The benefits from being connected are simply too great to ignore:
At OpenCape, we believe that the rate at which information can travel between institutions should not lag behind the speed with which colleges and research facilities advance the field of science. The increase in data transmission speeds made possible by OpenCape’s fiber optic broadband infrastructure will allow for collaborative projects between institutions. Local colleges and research facilities will now be able to easily connect with academic and scientific institutions across the country and to international research networks such as Internet2.
The influx of information and ideas in Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts will only serve to make the region more capable and competitive.
