NH Broadband Update
We are hard at work making progress on constructing an all fiber optic network in Sandwich. In late July, NHEC engineers and our project partners from Conexon were out in the field developing plans and determining infrastructure locations. This work is being used to support the initial fiber optic network design, which we expect to complete soon. Once this work is complete we will begin the survey and design work to prepare the utility poles to accept the new fiber optic cable.
If you haven’t yet, you can pre-order service at www.NHBroadband.com, and don’t forget to tell your friends and neighbors too! We’ll post regular project updates on our website and continue to add to our Frequently Asked Questions as the project continues to move forward.
Thanks for your interest and support of NH Broadband!

Here We Go!
Work is already underway in Sandwich and Acworth! Our project partners from Conexon, a company dedicated to bringing high-speed internet to rural communities, joined NHEC engineers in both towns recently to begin a survey of utility poles. This is part of the “make-ready” process that will prepare utility poles for fiber optic lines that will make high-speed internet available to everyone in town!

NHEC, and its subsidiary NH Broadband, are working to ensure all our members have access to the critical high-speed internet service they need. Much of this work is happening behind the scenes as we work to support our efforts with federal funds that will be made available through the State under the American Rescue Plan Act. Accessing grants is critical for NHEC’s efforts to bring broadband to unserved and underserved members, as it was when the Co-op was founded 82 years ago to bring electricity to rural areas of New Hampshire.
As we learn more about the State’s plans, including timelines and opportunities to submit grant requests, we will share them with you and look for your support to help us achieve our goal quickly and efficiently. We appreciate your patience and support as we work hard to submit strong proposals to the State on your behalf when funding is available.Read More

NH Broadband, NHEC’s broadband subsidiary, is continuing its work to expand high-speed internet access to more NHEC members.
Since completing its first fiber-optic systems in four towns just five months ago, NH Broadband has seen strong customer growth and is moving forward with an expansion of its network. The expansion will make broadband service available to nearly 200 additional homes and businesses in Lempster. NH Broadband will be contacting members living in these areas in the near future to offer service.
In addition, NHEC is conducting a comprehensive survey of utility poles throughout the NHEC electric service territory to speed the broadband construction process. The survey work is a critical part of preparing utility poles for the attachment of fiber optic cable.
The Co-op is also hard at
work identifying additional sources of federal, state and local funding and strategic
partners that will enable it to rapidly expand broadband internet service to
members, focusing initially on unserved and underserved areas. NHEC’s goal is
to reduce the extent to which we rely on member capital, to reduce financial
risk to our electric members and help keep service affordable.
