The long anticipated SanfordNet Fiber project – a 10-gig, 45-mile, municipal high-speed fiber optic network—is almost complete!
We’re very, very excited,” said City Manager Steve Buck. “It’s been the better part of five years in the making.”
Sanford will own the system, and GWI, a Maine-owned, Biddeford-based Internet services provider, will operate it.
A study conducted for the city in 2014 by Tilson Technology Management found that a new, high speed broadband system designed with business attraction, growth and retention in mind had the potential to inject $47-$192 million to Sanford’s economy over the next decade.
