Universal fiber broadband is coming to Block Island

Construction is underway! click to get Project updates

The Town of New Shoreham and Sertex are excited to continue moving ahead with the construction of BroadbandBI! The network will change everything for residents, visitors, and businesses, when gig speed internet connections to every premise on the island are completed in 2022.

Reliable broadband internet access delivered by municipally-owned fiber networks improves the productivity of existing businesses, allows telecommuting, creates new jobs, and attracts new businesses to remote areas. It incentivizes younger people to stay in the community, draws new residents, encourages tourism, and strengthens real estate markets.

We are excited to be part of the future of Block Island. BroadbandBI has come a long way, and we genuinely appreciate your support and patience.
