Broadband Internet Service - finally

E-mail Print

As many of you have heard, broadband Internet service was introduced in Wendell last winter. This service was implemented through a partnership with the Town of Warwick. Last year our core company, AccessPlus Communications, built the broadband network for Warwick on Mt. Grace. As part of that project, AccessPlus implemented a high speed connection from Mt. Grace to Mt. Tom and on to Springfield.
