Town of Princeton, MA, Hires G4S to Design FTTH Network

  • G4S Technology
Princeton, MA - A contract has been signed between the town of Princeton and G4S Technology LLC to design a fiber optic broadband network connecting town offices, schools and residences with high-speed Internet access. Headquartered in Omaha, Neb., G4S Technology maintains a Massachusetts office in Springfield.

Voters at the May 14 town meeting approved an article requested by the Princeton Broadband Committee to allocate funding for design services, which are expected to be completed by the end of July. The completed design, which includes the total cost needed to build the network, will then be brought to a vote at a special town meeting in September.

The state-of-the-art network will consist of new fiber along Princeton's existing utility poles. The location of the fiber optic cables on the poles has been approved by Princeton Municipal Light Department, the owners of the project space allocated.

The design will take into consideration more than 1,350 homes situated on Princeton's 80.62 miles of road and will require more than 425,600 feet of fiber optic cable. It will encompass access to all homes, including those set back from the road and those with underground utility services. A small number of Princeton homes located on Route 140 that rely on electrical services provided by the town of Sterling will be excluded from the completed design.
