The Claremont Advantage
Claremont is emerging as an important center of commerce. Building on its historic architecture, contemporary adaptive reuse is re-energizing the City Center. Claremont is home to precision technology and fine home and cabinetry manufacturing among many other businesses in the industrial lands surrounding the Connecticut River. Abundant land, a good transportation and broadband network, and much capacity in its infrastructure have made Claremont a true land of opportunity for companies looking to locate or expand in New Hampshire.
Many areas of Claremont - including almost all of the City Center - enjoy broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps. These speeds are some of the fastest in our region. One easy way to test the broadband capabilities of any address in the city is to use the National Broadband Mapping Tool.
