While protecting the best interest of the County and its Citizens, The goal of the Council is to research the best options available that advance a viable means to bring the best possible Broadband services to a county that has limited resources, sparse population and difficult terrain.
Our final goal would be to have a world-class community telecommunications infrastructure for Hampshire County for the 21st century and beyond. We acknowledge broadband is a critical service for quality of life, as is the case with roads, water, sewer, and electricity. Every home, business, non-profit organization, government entity, and place of education should have the opportunity to connect affordably, easily, and securely. Hampshire County should have broadband services that are shaped by the values of the citizens and businesses that take deep pride in our community.
