BELD is recognized locally and nationally as an innovator in technology and new services. In 2000, after running a new hybrid fiber coax network throughout the town, the department began offering cable television services to Braintree residents. Over the following years, that was expanded to include Internet and phone services to both residents and businesses in town.
