The Island-wide broadband network is coming to Block Island!

Register now for a fiber connection!

The Town of New Shoreham and Sertex Broadband Solutions are bringing reliable high-speed Internet service to Block Island residents, businesses and visitors. Underground drop construction to properties is expected to begin soon, with planning already underway.

Sertex engineering professionals are working with the Town to secure necessary permits, validate property addresses, and map “Fiberhood” service areas. During this time, property owners are asked to register and submit a service request to confirm their interest in getting a fiber drop.

After your registration is submitted, your property will be assigned to a Fiberhood. Sertex will begin contacting customers in mid-March to schedule on-site consultations. We will meet individually with property owners to conduct site assessments and discuss the fiber deployment requirements. With more than 60 miles of underground drop construction included in the island-wide network, the process of scheduling and conducting appointments will continue throughout the spring timeframe. Construction of underground and aerial drops to properties will be on-going.

Thank you to property owners who have already registered!
