Town of Milton Broadband Expansion Phase I Residents: Have you contacted CCT for a site visit yet? Time is quickly running out and if you don’t respond by October 1st, you will be left behind! Even if you do not plan to sign up for services, you need to notify CCT whether you want a “drop” brought to your home. This would allow you (or the next owner of your home) to hook up to services without significant costs and would also increase the re-sale value of your home.
