The following announcement was posted to the Town of New Shoreham’s website on Friday, Nov. 6: 

On island work related to the Island Wide Broadband Project is underway with Pike Telecom physically reviewing fiber routes and existing infrastructure. The crews will be carrying proper identification and will wear masks and observe all COVID prevention protocols. The crew does NOT need access into any buildings and does not need to speak with homeowners or caretakers so contact is not required. If you have any concerns or questions related to Pike Telecom please contact Sam Bird at 617-538-7633 or email broadband@new-shoreham.com

Additional information about pre-subscription broadband sign-up will be released in coming weeks here on the bulletin board, Town website, through USPS mail and in the Block Island Times.
