Taking place on October 28-29, 2019, at Thomas College in Waterville, Maine, the 2019 Maine Broadband Summit was a two-day conference focused on inspiring and empowering community leaders to address the challenges of bringing reliable, high-speed internet to Maine.
Hosted by the Maine Broadband Coalition, in partnership with the Island Institute, GrowSmart Maine, Fourth Economy Consulting, and the ConnectME Authority, the 2019 Maine Broadband Summit brought together more than 150 community leaders, representatives, and technical experts to share experiences and resources for how communities can move forward with locally-driven broadband projects to address their needs and how we can all work together to help improve connectivity across our state.
Day 1 of the two-day conference brought together local leaders from communities across Maine to share experiences and updates on their community-driven broadband projects.
On Day 2, local leaders were joined by state and regional leaders, technical experts, and affiliated partners to help connect communities with resources and tools for reaching broadband goals.
