WiredWest Broadband Sign Up Options

E-mail Print

In order to qualify Wendell to be part of the WiredWest community broadband network, a minimum of 40% of our households must sign up for the service by this spring by paying a $49 deposit for 25 Mbps (unlimited data) internet service. This will be held in escrow and counted towards your first month´s service, which will likely not begin for two years, as the fiber-optic cables need to be wired throughout the participating towns first. If you move or change your mind, you may ask for a refund.

To sign up and pay on-line: https://register.wiredwest.net/
(To pay securely on-line you will be directed to pay via Amazon).

For people who prefer to mail in a check, you can do so by downloading a PDF of the WiredWest Sign Up Form (here), then print it out and fill in the information on the form with a check for your $49 deposit.

Mail form and check to:

A message from Robbie Leppzer, Chair of the Broadband Committee, March 3, 2015

E-mail Print

After many years of organizing to bring high-speed fiber-optic broadband internet to Wendell and over 30 other towns in western Massachusetts that currently have no broadband access, I´m pleased to announce that WiredWest, the non-profit municipal cooperative that has spearheaded this effort, has now launched a customer sign-up campaign for the actual service.

Emergency Preparedness in Wendell

E-mail Print

Recent prolonged power outages in town triggered the response of several town emergency systems, but also gave rise to some questions about our emergency plans. Here is an update on what town services are available in an emergency.

Thanks to the efforts of many of the town’s first responders, we now have an Emergency Operations Center, located in an office between the Fire Department and the Highway Department. This Center, which can maintain radio contact with Shelburne Falls Emergency Dispatch as well as the Wendell Fire and Police Departments, was staffed and operational during the first days of the power outage. Fire Chief Everett Ricketts was on duty full time, coordinating communication and town emergency servies. Many town residents without water came to the EOC where they could fill water containers.
