Internet connectivity is increasingly becoming the essential tool for 21st century success. With a robust broadband connection, we can balance our love of the Maine lifestyle while retaining access to high-paying job opportunities, world-class education, telehealth medicine, up-to-date news and emergency notifications, and immersive entertainment options.

What is Broadband?

Broadband is a term we throw around that is often synonymous with Internet, but really it is a technical term for the signaling method behind high-speed Internet.  It is a data transmission signal operating over a wide range of frequencies that can be sent using fiber optic cable, coaxial cable, twisted pair cable, wireless radio (Wi-Fi, cellular, etc), or wireless satellite. This broad range of data bandwidth enables multiple devices to simultaneously send (upload) and receive (download) information more quickly – the more megabits per second (Mbps) you have available to use in your home, the more devices in your home can more quickly take advantage of everything available to you online.
