PITTSFIELD – Residents and businesses in the Town of Pittsfield will soon have access to fiber internet service.

The Town Board recently entered into a project agreement with Nsight Telservices to deliver fiber internet to more than 1,000 addresses in the village.

Keith Deneys, chairman of the Pittsfield Town Board said with speed options from 300 Mbps up to a gigabit, the project will address the growing need for fast, reliable internet.

“Fast internet is a necessity,” he said. “With so much grant funding available, the Town Board kicked off our efforts last March to bring faster internet to our residents. Nsight Telservices has the experience and knowledge to meet the needs of our community, and we look forward to working together on this project.”

Deneys said the Town of Pittsfield committed $275,000 to the project, which is primarily American Rescue Plan Act dollars.
Brighid Riordan, CEO of Nsight Telservices, said Nsight Telservices and the town will partner to seek additional grant funding to support the project further.

“Nsight Telservices is committed to serving rural areas and providing communities with the latest technological advances,” she said. “Public-private partnerships are important to the success of building out rural areas and are advantageous for grant applications. We’re grateful for the support from the village and look forward to bringing fiber to the residents of Pittsfield.” 

Riordan said project planning has begun, with construction starting in 2024.
