Board moves forward with Wi-Fi project

WOODSVILLE—The Haverhill Selectboard signed off last week on the initial phase of a short-term, low-cost plan to bring public Wi-Fi access to downtown Woodsville.
The board voted 5-0 on Oct. 13 to approve initial outreach and planning for a $50,000 Wi-Fi mesh network that would rely on existing private broadband connections in the village.
The project will be led by Lyndon-based IT consultant Andy Mosedale, who had previously briefed the board. Mosedale generally described the internet speeds in Woodsville as “pretty bleak.”
