Background Info on All-Fiber Internet Service

We first began our involvement with establishing fiber optic internet service to the area in 2006, as a partner with the Five College Network, responsible for installation of the fiber network that serves nearby colleges. SHELD has also partnered with the primary state authority (the Mass Broadband Institute) involved with providing high-speed internet access for towns like South Hadley across the commonwealth. These long-standing partnerships have helped us gain the technical expertise necessary to install, operate, and support commercial fiber internet service.

South Hadley is already benefiting from SHELD's installation of the fiber network through efficiencies gained by town facilities currently getting internet service the network, including the majority of municipal entities, public schools, and the majority of town departments. The vast majority of physical and personnel assets necessary to fulfill the role of internet service provider are already in place at SHELD and will not need to be duplicated. This will help us keep pricing highly competitive for South Hadley businesses.

Because this all-fiber internet service is a new offering to area businesses, the decision was made to distinguish the brand name of the service (FiberSonic) from SHELD's commercial electric offerings. This is intended to prevent confusion, because the decision whether or not to adopt the service has no effect on a business's electric service.
