Spectrum pitches cable deal to Jonesport

by Nancy Beal

Representatives of Charter Communications, parent company of Spectrum, came to Jonesport last week to pitch a plan that would bring internet to all households in town. The company had been invited by selectmen, who have been exploring ways to use the American Rescuer Plan Act (ARPA) money that communities received during the Covid-19 pandemic to help with municipal expenses. Broadband build-out is one of the allowable expenditures. Jonesport received $369,000.
