WiFi Hotspot!

Where? Cummington Community House

Thanks to Governor Baker and Whip City Fiber!

The efforts of our administration combined with our ISP, Whip City Fiber, have borne fruit with a new high speed connection to the Community House, at least until September.


This WiFi hotspot will provide our community with a temporary 250 megabit per second wireless hotspot, allowing increased broadband access for residents, families and students impacted by COVID-19.


Citizens who use these hotspots must continue to follow social distancing protocols.
