A New Hampshire town is building the infrastructure to support its own municipal broadband network.

The Concord Monitor reports Bristol residents voted to pass a measure providing nearly $100,000 for a three-mile fiber connection through the town’s business district. Officials expect another $33,000 next year along with a grant to complete the project.

Gov. Chris Sununu passed legislation last summer that allows municipalities to post bonds to build broadband connections.
