LeverettNet Gets International Attention – July 22, 2015

As reported in the Greenfield Recorder and Daily Hampshire Gazette:

Now that LeverettNet has been online for nearly four months — with 82 percent of the town’s 800 or so households reportedly connected — the town’s first-in-Western-Massachusetts municipal broadband service caught the attention Wednesday of a top Chinese business newspaper.

As part of a tour of foreign journalists to western Massachusetts, the chief correspondent for Economic Daily, described as a “Chinese Wall Street Journal” visited Town Hall and even stopped by the Village Co-Op to check out customers using the town’s new gigabit-per-second service.
