OpenCape has a reliable and stellar reputation for initiating community-led programs connecting people all over the region,” said Marie Oliva, President & CEO, Cape Cod Canal Region Chamber, who is hosting the informational session.

“We are listening and responding to the small business owners who want a choice in providers, reliable and affordable internet, not just for today but for many years to come,’ said Steve Johnston, OpenCape CEO. ‘As a local nonprofit provider, we know how important it is to support our local economy, and creating a future-proof network for our region helps foster a sustainable future.”
