WESTFIELD, MA — Starting this summer, Westfield Gas & Electric (WG+E) will begin offering high-speed Internet to selected addresses in Westfield. Whip City Fiber is a direct connection through WG+E’s fiber optic network which will provide two-way transmission speeds of 1 Gbps or more.

WG+E stated that as innovation in Internet applications and the associated demand for more bandwidth continues to grow its customers needed this service. If the pilot program proves to be as successful as anticipated, WG+E will gear up for a larger rollout to other areas in Westfield.
