Heath Highspeed Broadband Update

August 25, 2019 Update

Heath Broadband is a community network; those coordinating our network build include volunteer Heath residents.

Our goal is to provide fiber to all homes in Heath that wish to subscribe.

Our sustainability is based on people subscribing to the service.

We envision a network where all homes in Heath will have access to 1 Gigabyte of service that will enable you to:

  • have the fastest internet service available
  • stream movies and TV
  • work from home
  • choose to subscribe to phone service through the internet
  • ensure your home is ready for a future where broadband is an expected and necessary utility
  • make your home "fiber-ready" in the event you choose to not subscribe during initial enrollment. (Note: neighboring towns are experiencing an increase in property values related to broadband).

When?

Current schedule indicates all homes in Heath will be "live" by end of December 2020: Pole replacements are happening now; the contractor for fiber installation will be selected within a month; First Heath customers may have service in July 2020.

How much?

Will depend on the speed you choose and whether you choose to include phone service. Anticipated monthly estimate of price to customers for internet alone is $59.99 to $110.00.

What's next?

As the network build is nearing completion you will be notified about the services offered and given opportunity to subscribe; we anticipate starting our marketing campaign and signing up customers in April 2020.

Heath Broadband team: Bob Bourke, Art Schwenger, Sheila Litchfield Jan Carr, Ned Wolf.
