The State of Maine, through the Maine Connectivity Authority, is developing a Broadband Action Plan to decide how $250 million in federal funds should be used to expand access to high-speed internet and ensure that we all have what we need to connect to the digital world. The plan will identify priorities for investment in broadband and digital equity and inclusion to advance our goal of ensuring that everyone in Maine and Kennebec County can benefit from access to affordable, reliable, high-speed internet.
