Edgartown selectmen asked to pressure Comcast


To the Editor:

I’ve sent this letter to the Edgartown selectmen.

We strongly urge you to do everything within your power to pressure Comcast to provide high speed internet service on Chappaquiddidick.

You represent all taxpaying members of the Edgartown community in matters of general public interest. We pay the same taxes as Edgartown residents on the other side of the harbor and deserve the same level of services they receive.

The current replacement of power cables by NSTAR represents a golden opportunity for Comcast to correct an inequity of services that has existed for far too long.

Please fulfill your responsibility as the representatives of all Edgartown taxpayers and do the right thing for all of your constituents.

Jonathan Cobb
