OpenCape

OpenCape is a nonprofit founded in 2006, that operates the existing fiber optic network on Cape Cod. OpenCape serves some of the municipal buildings, the schools, the libraries, and some businesses in Falmouth. Their existing network would serve as the back bone for Falmouth’s network and OpenCape is an excellent model to follow.
