Fast, affordable Internet access for all.
The network design will begin immediately, with construction of the first phase of the network to be completed in spring 2012. This phase will bring fiber connections between Orford and Enfield. The second phase of the project should be completed in the fall of 2012, allowing connections for those living between Keene and Rindge. The third phase should be finished by spring of 2013, with faster connections available for those living between Enfield and Lempster. The new connections will provide speeds that are 100 to 130 times faster than the current minimum federal standard for broadband Internet at 768 kilobits per second download speed, and 200 kps upload speed. … FastRoads is partnering with Network New Hampshire Now, a collaboration of public and private organizations to develop a high-speed broadband network throughout the state. A $44.5 million grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and $22 million in matching funds and private donations fund the project.
