Design Firm Hired for Princeton Fiber Optic Broadband Network
Contract signed between the town of Princeton and G4S Technology LLC
Princeton, MA (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
A contract has been signed between the town of Princeton and G4S Technology LLC to design a fiber optic broadband network connecting town offices, schools and residences with high-speed Internet access. Headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, G4S Technology maintains a Massachusetts office in Springfield.
Voters at the May 14 town meeting approved an article requested by the Princeton Broadband Committee to allocate funding for design services expected to be completed by the end of July. The completed design, which includes the total cost needed to build the network, will then be brought to a vote at a special town meeting in September.
The state of the art network will consist of new fiber along Princeton´s existing utility poles. The location of the fiber optic cables on the poles has been approved by Princeton Municipal Light Department, the owners of the project space allocated.
The design will take into consideration more than 1,350 homes situated on Princeton´s 80.62 miles of road resulting in more than 425,600 feet of fiber optic cable. It will encompass access to all homes, including those set back from the road and those with underground utility services. A small number of Princeton homes located on Route 140 that rely on electrical services provided by the town of Sterling will be excluded from the completed design.
“We are excited to work on the design phase of this project with the town of Princeton,” said Bob Sommerfeld, President of G4S Technology. “We believe bringing broadband into smaller communities across the state will make a tremendous impact on economic growth, education and public safety. Community members will also enjoy the speed, reliability and convenience that high-speed broadband services will provide them on a daily basis at their schools, libraries, offices and homes.”
