Maryland Broadband Office to hold online hearings for internet funding/ accessibility

13 March 2023- With Pennsylvania, Franklin and Fulton Counties, and more even Washington hyper focused on improving rural broadband options, reliability, and affordability, the state of Maryland now steps up to the plate to improve internet connectivity for its citizens. The process involves a number of meetings that will, ironically, be done virtually for all people in the state to comment on the proposed changes. Information on the individual meetings are available below.

The Maryland Office of Statewide Broadband will host online meetings starting next week with key stakeholders to focus on broadband funding and accessibility.

We encourage you to forward this information to your colleagues and local affiliates to attend these important engagements. You are welcome to use the link for the session that best meets your schedule and area of interest.
