Towns jockey for high-speed access amid funding surplus

by Ruth Leubecker

“It’s not that Downeast Broadband Utility is actively trying to get other towns on board. We’re not,” says Dan Sullivan, president of DBU, “but when they approach us, we’re encouraging them to join.”

Sullivan, who created the nonprofit for bringing high-speed broadband to rural Maine, is a passionate cheerleader for the increasing potential of the fledgling initiative. Calais and Baileyville are now nearly 100-percent connected with the fiber network infrastructure.
