An official "Fiber is Rolling" construction kickoff media event on Cape Cod for Feb 27 at 11 a.m. at local cable station C3TV's large studio.

We're hoping that the event will be streamed live to desktops, so on the chance you are unable to make it, you can still view the event. We're still sorting out the entire speaker lineup. Confirmed to speak are Congressman Keating and State Sen. Dan Wolf, the chair of Barnstable County commissioners.

We also have three state reps attending. Invitations are going out to Verizon, National Grid, NStar, Statewide, Otis, WHOI, some large businesses,and all media will be invited.

Fiber for OpenCape Project Rolled Out this Week in Brockton MA

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 23, 2012

FIBER ROLLING: ElecComm's Angel DeJesus (center) attaches an orange winch line to the inaugural spool of the OpenCape Network fiber optic cabling this week in Brockton, MA, while Christian DeJesus (left) and Bob Mcgyvers (right) help ready the 9000-foot long cable.

The winch line pulls the fiber to the top of utility poles along the network's route. This first two-mile segment marks the start of the regional network's construction, which is funded by federal BTOP and state broadband funds. CapeNet, which is coordinating the build, said the planned 350 miles of fiber will provide core fiber optic infrastructure on Cape Cod and across large portions of the south coast and Plymouth areas. The company expects to complete construction within 10 months.
