Roque Bluffs wins $1M grant to build fiber optic network

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon


Countless hours spent in pursuit of a federal grant have paid off for Roque Bluffs, now the winner of a $1M award that will enable the town to build its own broadband network. Axiom Technologies will administer the network which, when built, will offer every home in Roque Bluffs state-of-the-art internet service.


“From my perspective this a game changer for Washington County,” said Axiom President Mark Ouellette. “Roque Bluffs is now going to have better connectivity than New York City.”
