North Adams Housing Authority To Install Free Internet
The Housing Authority's Board of Commissioners voted this week to work toward providing free internet to all tenants.
According to a story reported on by iBerkshires.com, Jason Morin, the authority's information technology consultant, told the board on Monday that he is looking at a few different options to install internet at all properties.
Morin said, "There are different ways to do this and each one has its own challenge. We are looking at a lot of different angles."
Executive Director Jennifer Hohn said the Housing Authority looked in the past to provide limited internet access but now that the internet is essentially a utility, she felt the Housing Authority should find a way to offer it to tenants.
Jennifer explained further:
People are trying to find jobs and go to school, stuff like that. An internet connection is necessary and unfortunately a lot of our tenants can't afford that so we would like to offer that in the future.
