State-of-the-art communications are becoming increasingly important to us all. Towards this goal, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is making selected sites available for lease for communications infrastructure*. These sites may provide excellent opportunities to improve the reliability of telecommunications networks across the state. You may contact us at Telecom@state.ma.us to schedule a site visit. All proposals, except where indicated, must include the use of existing structures/areas. More details are available in the Request for Proposals (RFPs). Most RFPs will be open for an entire year, and each RFP has separate closing dates for proposals.
