The town-wide fiber optic internet access network envisioned by FalmouthNet is one step closer to reality this week thanks to a $100,000 amendment in the economic development bill signed into law last weekend by Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker. Falmouth Representative Dylan Fernandes negotiated the amendment, which was also supported by Senator Susan Moran and Representative David Vieira.

“High-speed internet is essential for modern life and should be treated like a public utility,” Rep. Fernandes said. “I’m proud to have negotiated for funding that will help bring affordable, accessible internet to all Falmouth residents.”

David Isenberg is the head of FalmouthNet’s advisory board. He grew up in Falmouth, earned a PhD from Cal Tech and served as a distinguished member of technical staff at Bell Labs from 1985 to 1998.
