(Boston, MA) — It’s been a week since the state’s updated health connector website went live. According to the “Globe,” nearly 12-hundred people have successfully signed up on-line for insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Some are still experiencing bugs with the website. A spokesman for the Massachusetts Health Connector says part of the problem has to do with the high volume of visitors, and that they’re working to solve the problems.
