The OpenCape Network is sometimes referred to as the “Third Bridge,” joining the Sagamore and Bourne bridges as access portals to and from Cape Cod.
This moniker illustrates our view that the network, as core infrastructure, can be used as a tool to enhance and grow the economy of our region. To help reshape the dialogue about where we work, how we live and what we create.
If you live on the Cape, the Islands or elsewhere in Southeastern Mass, chances are you currently have only one option when it comes to Internet connectivity in your home or business. We are working to change that and to offer towns, businesses and residents the chance to choose how they interact in this digital age.
OpenCape is also creating a platform for economic development, growth and innovation. Our state-of-the-art network allows our region to compete economically and attract, develop and retain businesses. To use technology to ensure that our schools flourish. To provide opportunities for our grown children to return home after college and work and live in the communities they love. To allow patients to reach doctors and specialists around the corner or around the world. To use connectivity to address pressing social problems like wastewater management, traffic and addiction.
OpenCape is the vibrant infrastructure that will allow our communities to flourish for decades to come.
