Last Mile Maps & Data

The Commonwealth’s Last Mile program is connecting unserved and underserved municipalities in Western and Central Massachusetts to 21st-century high-speed internet.

Of the 53 Last Mile communities, 30 towns have completed projects and an additional 13 municipalities have some premises lit, but are not fully complete.

MAP: Last Mile Broadband Projects: Project Status, March 2021 (310 KB)

Last Mile Broadband Projects map: New Services as of March 2021                                   

Map representing the status of last mile broadband projects.  Towns in the MassBroadband123 service area that were considered "unserved" and "underserved" by broadband qualified for last mile broadband funding support from the Commonwealth. The map differentiates towns according to four categories: (1) towns with fully complete and operational networks, (2) towns with partially operational networks that are still in construction, (3) remaining last mile towns to be completed, and (4) previously served towns not included in the program.

MAP: MassBroadband123 Towns by Broadband Availability, July 1, 2015 (3.5 MB)

MassBroadband 123 Service Area and Network map: Towns by Broadband Availability                                                             

Map of towns in the MassBroadband123 service area that were considered "unserved" by broadband prior to the implementation of the last mile programs because they did not have cable, fiber-optic, or other internet services that met the FCC minimum requirement speeds of 25 Mbps downstream & 3 Mbps upstream.  The map differentiates the unserved towns by the type of infrastructure that was present in the towns at that time and is overlaid by the MassBroadband123 network fiber-optic cable and points of interconnection locations.


MAP: MassBroadband123 Underserved Cable Broadband Towns, July 1, 2015 (3.5 MB)

MassBroadband 123 Service Area and Network map: Underserved Cable Broadband Towns                                 

Map of towns in the MassBroadband123 service area that have cable broadband service, but were considered "underserved" prior to the implementation of the broadband extension program because they had less than 96% cable penetration rates. The towns are overlaid by the MassBroadband123 network fiber-optic cable and points of interconnection locations.
