Fiber Connect Low-Income Broadband Subsidy Program

Under the terms of Fiber Connect's agreement with the Town of Egremont to wire the Town for fiber optic broadband, Fiber Connect offers a low-income subsidy to qualifying households in the form of a 50% discount on their published installation charges and on monthly broadband service (taxes excluded).

This program was adopted on a one-year trial basis and is currently ongoing. Go here to find out if you are eligible and to apply.  

Free Wi-Fi Hotspots

Fiber Connect of the Berkshires provides free public Wi-Fi hotspots in South and North Egremont – Town Hall Parking Lot, 171 Rt. 71, No. Egremont and the Free Library Parking Lot, 1 Buttonball Lane, So. Egremont. 

The ISP also provides free public Wi-Fi in French Park. When in the Park, access "EgremontFreeWi-Fi," an unsecured network. The Wi-Fi service covers the lower portion of the Park - tennis courts, playground, Little League field, pavilions, horse rink, and the open areas. A 360° antenna on a pole behind one of the dugouts broadcasts the signal. Speeds will vary depending on your distance from the antenna.

With the receipt of a state grant, two more Wi-Fi hotspots will be added along Main St., So. Egremont, and one hotspot at the intersection of Boice Rd and Rt. 71 in No. Egremont later in 2022.
