The fight for internet freedom begins August 14th. Upgrade Cambridge needs your help to launch our fall campaign.
For two years, Cambridge City Manager Louis DePasquale has unilaterally blocked progress on planning for municipal broadband. Community owned broadband enjoys wide support in Cambridge, but overcoming the committed opposition of the Manager requires demonstrating to the City Council that we expect them to take action and not let the status quo stand.
Virtually every high income household in Cambridge has broadband. Only 50% of low income households have broadband. Tens of millions of Cambridge dollars are extracted by Comcast each year, paying for stock buybacks, dividends, and corporate acquisitions rather than investments for our community.
On August 14th, 6PM, at the Central Square Library, join Upgrade Cambridge to organize and plan our next steps. Come with your ideas and willingness to work.
