Terry Cowgill for the Berkshire Edge (Feb. 27, 2018)

“Downtown Great Barrington seems like a bustling place. By Berkshire County standards, it’s like living or working in the fast lane – that is, unless you want to use the internet...New Marlborough resident Tim Newman, along with Selectman Ed Abrahams, has enticed Fiber Connect of the Berkshires, a Monterey-based broadband provider, to wire the core of downtown with fiber-optic lines that will bring standard download speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second. That’s a far cry from Charter-Spectrum, the cable television behemoth whose consumer-grade speeds max out at 100 megabits per second, or about one-tenth of Fiber Connect’s.” Read More.
