NHEC- NH BROADBAND

This is an update regarding the internet service being rolled out by New Hampshire Electric Co-oP (NHEC). They are calling the service "NH Broadband" and they have created a website for the service: NH Broadband: https://nhbroadband.com

On the webiste, there is a place to enter a physical address and express interest in signing up when service becomes available in the area. It asks for basic contact information so they can keep people posted on their progress, there is no deposit or anything like that.

We expect that the areas with the most people requesting service will be prioritized in the build out.

The Town encourages members of the community to express interest if they think they may want to go with the Co-op for broadband. We checked the map and service will ultimately cover all parts of Groton that are served by NHEC for electricity.

SOCIAL SECURITY SCAM
