New Britain, CT.—June 26, 2023—GoNetspeed and the City of New Britain today announced that residents and businesses throughout the North End of the city are now eligible to sign up for high-speed 100% fiber internet service through GoNetspeed. Residents interested may visit gonetspeed.com to confirm service availability for their location and to sign up for service installation.
GoNetspeed is continuing construction throughout the North End of the city, and service is expected to be available to additional residents in the coming weeks. As GoNetspeed continues to make access to service available to residents and businesses throughout the city, more individuals are now able to experience symmetrical fiber internet speeds that allow customers to upload just as fast as they can download.
“GoNetspeed is continuing to make rapid progress and more of our residents and businesses are now able to experience a higher quality of online life,” said Mayor Erin Stewart. “The partnership with GoNetspeed will support our growth as a community, paving a path for success and development that will carry New Britain well into the future. We are thrilled to see the impact of a new provider and a new option for our residents as we near the completion of the project.”
The $10 million project is funded by GoNetspeed and the City of New Britain’s American Rescue Plan Act funds, coming at no cost to the New Britain taxpayer. This infrastructure will ensure that residents have access to affordable, high-speed internet service, and that all municipal buildings and traffic points will be interconnected on their own private fiber network. Through this unique strategic partnership, city departments and public safety personnel will soon be able to better provide service to New Britain residents.
“We have continued to quickly deploy service availability to residents and businesses throughout New Britain,” said Tom Perrone, GoNetspeed Chief Operating Officer. “With construction completed and access to service available throughout the South End of the city, residents throughout the North End are quickly gaining access to service that will power their modern home and work life.”
