Braintree Electric Light Department (BELD) is a municipal, not-for-profit electric utility and Internet/phone provider, exclusively serving the residents and businesses of Braintree, MA.
As long-time residents know, even in the worst storms the power never goes out for long in Braintree. BELD Electric’s customer-first philosophy drives our Internet group, too.
We answer the phone quickly. We make house calls. We do everything we can to make our customers’ lives a little easier.
And unlike our profit-driven competitors, we reinvest every dollar to improve service and deliver top value. In 2019, we upped our game yet again with the launch of BELD’s Gig Speed Internet — as fast as you can get.
BELD’s HFC network uses a combination of optical fiber and coaxial cable to provide Internet access to homes and businesses. The international standard used to deliver Internet over the HFC network is known as DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification). BELD currently uses DOCSIS version 3.1.
BELD is governed by a Municipal Light Board with members elected by residents. The group meets monthly and meetings are open to the public.
