Given the number of abandoned roads in town, what will happen if someone builds a house on a road unserved by poles or wires? Will the town be obligated to extend the network on those abandoned roads to serve those houses?

The Plainfield Planning Board is reviewing and validating all of Plainfield’s roadways (existing, discontinued, and abandoned for maintenance). Plainfield’s “last mile” broadband network has been designed and will be built to pass 100 percent of current premises as documented on the official street list and verified occupied/occupiable by site visit. The network is designed to be expandable, as long as town planning, zoning, and building regulations allow. The capital costs of future expansion are being factored into the long-term financial plan of the network.
