  • Designed, built, and owned by MBI
  • Operated by KCST USA, formerly Axia NGNetworks.

The network consists of approximately 1,200 miles of fiber, connecting 123 communities in western and north central Massachusetts. It covers more than one-third of the geographic area of Massachusetts, which has more than 400,000 households and businesses and more than one million residents.

Axia provides wholesale service to local retail Internet Service Providers (ISP).

  • ISPs using the network offer broadband services to public safety entities, schools, libraries, medical facilities, town halls, and other Community Anchor Institutions (CAI) already connected to the network.
  • ISPs may also provide quotes for and build new extensions to connect additional CAIs and businesses in the region.
