In October 2019, the SELCO Commission voted to pursue a Fiber to the Home deployment to bring fiber internet service to every home and business in the Town of Shrewsbury. Construction on this project began in 2020 and is expected to take five years to complete.
This superior technology will provide consumers with the bandwidth and speed needed for modern life. Fiber service offers outstanding reliability and symmetrical upload and download speeds that best support learning and working from home as well as video streaming, gaming, smart home “internet of things,” and so much more.
SELCO’s Fiber deployment will help drive economic development and facilitate smart city initiatives. It is our belief that we are building the foundation needed to keep Shrewsbury a highly desirable community in which to work and live.
fiber to the home
Our deployment plan consists of three phases, starting in the northern part of Town. The interactive map below shows the areas covered by each phase and estimated construction dates. Fiber will become available in individual neighborhoods throughout the construction process as work is completed in different areas.
Customers will receive notification via the CodeRed messaging system when they are able to sign up for Fiber service. SELCO will reach out to customers to transition them to fiber as service becomes avilable at their location. There will be a "sunset date" for old legacy cable modem service in each neighborhood that will be clearly communicated to customers through phone calls and direct mailings. Any customer who does not migrate to fiber by the date indicated for their area runs the risk of losing internet access as our old legacy service is discontinued.
