Expanding Broadband in Maine

December 15, 2020 – 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

COVID -19 has made access to reliable high-speed internet service more important than ever.  Today, broadband is the key to education, healthcare, business, civic engagement, working remotely and so much more.

Maine is a rural state, where some residents still lack access to broadband. The Maine State Chamber hosted a virtual forum of government, civic and industry leaders to discuss our state’s broadband challenges and ways to create an environment necessary to help speed next-generation broadband networks throughout Maine.
