Rich May Client, Galaxy Internet Services Will Launch First Town-Wide WiFi Network

Congratulations to Rich May client Galaxy Internet Services, Inc. (“Galaxy”), the regional leader in Internet services and municipal wireless networks. The town of Brookline announced that it will launch the region’s first town-wide combined WiFi/public safety network at a July 18 “wire-cutting event” as part of an innovative public/private partnership. The multi-use network will be owned and operated by Galaxy and Brookline will be the first municipality in the United States to have a “border-to-border”, multi-use first responder WiFi network providing important public safety benefits.

The goal of the project is to satisfy Brookline’s need for improved public safety and municipal communications while providing consumers and business with new options for Internet access. In addition to paid wireless Internet access for consumers and businesses, limited free access will be available in certain commercial areas, Brookline Housing Authority properties and public parks, the town said. The packages made available by Galaxy to residents and businesses will be less costly for similar plan types offered by other companies.

According to Bob Carp, Galaxy’s president, “The Brookline WiFi mesh network is an excellent example how a single wireless infrastructure can support both public safety and general public access.”

Rich May, P.C. represented Galaxy in developing and implementing these WiFi arrangements.
