The town of Northborough has begun negotiations with telecommunications giant Verizon, which wants to offer cable service to residents and compete with the current sole provider, Charter Communications.
The Board of Selectmen last Monday voted unanimously to begin the process, Town Administrator Barry Brenner said. Verizon would have to offer the town service comparable to Charter's, including public access channels, Brenner said.
