CapeNet CEO Alan Davis addressed an audience of 200-plus, including the Governor and Senate President, during the "This Changes Everything" celebration of the completion of the region's new open access fiber optic network.
Davis, whose company built and will operate the OpenCape network, shared details of its launch during the June 14 event at Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay.
The project began seven years ago, almost to the day, according to OpenCape co-founder Teresa Martin.
Governor Deval Patrick, Senate President Therese Murray (D-Plymouth), and State Senator Dan Wolf (D-Harwich) were the featured speakers at the event.
The event was attended by county commissioners, state representatives, Cape Cod selectmen and police and fire chiefs.
The region's new fiber optic network spans 37 towns from Providence to Provincetown.
