Salem, MA partnered with SiFi Networks to create a citywide fiber optic network

Salem, MA citywide fiber optic network

In Progress

The City of Salem has partnered with SiFi Networks to create the infrastructure for a citywide fiber optic network. The Salem City Council signed a 30-year contract with SiFi Networks which allows them to charge service providers for using the network. In exchange, SiFi Networks is covering the estimated $35 million in setup costs. The arrangement will provide much needed competition with Comcast as it is currently the only reliable high-speed Internet option available in the city.
