Municipal facilities to be connected to the 'Nutmeg Network' internet

A series of grants have been approved to help municipalities with the infrastructure costs associated with connecting their town governments to the state’s Nutmeg Network and extending its availability to include all municipal services.

 

The Nutmeg Network is the state's fiber-optic infrastructure that delivers high-speed internet access to its members and is already offered in schools, libraries and emergency services facilities.

 

Extended use of the network was an initiative developed from Speaker of the House Brendan Sharkey’s MORE, Municipal Opportunities and Regional Efficiencies,  Commission.

 

Governor Malloy said that his administration intends on carrying out a second round of grants next year; application information will be forthcoming in the next few months.
