Broadband in Massachusetts
The fifth most connected state in the US boasts an impressive 98 percent broadband coverage, with an average statewide speed of 57.2 Mbps, with only 4 percent underserved. Since 2010, the state has received over six million dollars in federal grants to through the Massachusetts Broadband Institute for the Massachusetts Broadband Initiative, with broadband infrastructure projects receiving close to 80 million over the same period. Monopoly is still a concern, with an estimated 167,000 users having access to a single service provider, with 153,000 people lacking broadband coverage altogether. However this project seeks to close the gap on high speed access for homes and businesses that have been lacking connectivity to cable and fiber networks that will provide the download speeds necessary to participate in the digital economy.
