Springfield Plans Feasibility Study Of Municipal Broadband Network (WAMC)

Hear the full interview with Councilor Lederman and WAMC's Paul Tuthill here.

The city of Springfield, Massachusetts plans to have a feasibility study done on building a municipal broadband network.

Exploring a fiber-to-the-home project in Springfield comes at a time when the pandemic has led to more remote work and study and exposed a large digital divide.

There is now also the availability of federal funds from the American Rescue Plan to possibly pay for the infrastructure for the broadband network.

Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno’s office announced the plans for a feasibility study following a meeting with department heads and City Councilor Jesse Lederman, who has been championing the idea.

Lederman spoke with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.
