Daily Hampshire Gazette: Northampton and Easthampton should create municipal networks

We missed this editorial in the Daily Hampshire Gazette on March 2nd. The Gazette is all for Northampton and Easthampton’s efforts to create municipal (community) networks. Read the whole thing! It’s nice they called out our coalition and petition network in particular.

Thanks to everyone for doing your part, even if it was just signing a petition online. It not only makes a difference, it’s clearly made the difference!

We’re glad the idea is finally gaining steam thanks in large part to a push from residents who are part of the Northampton High-Speed Community Network Coalition. At a recent council meeting, the group handed the mayor hundreds of signatures from residents in support of municipal broadband and added that there is strong backing from the business community.
