On October 11 from 6 to 7 p.m., Scoville Memorial Library will present Northwest ConneCT: High-speed broadband Internet and the Sustainability of Our Rural Communities, a presentation by Felicia Jones.
NorthwestConneCT is a non-profit group founded by a number of community members who were concerned over our poor internet and mobile connectivity. While often inconvenient, the lack of fast connectivity impacts larger economic, health, safety, educational and other issues and the future well being of the Northwest Corner.
Jones will present information regarding the proposed fiber optic infrastructure build project and be available for questions and group discussion. Ultimately, the project will require a town by town vote so this is a great opportunity to be informed in this early phase of development.
