Washington County lagging in statewide broadband upswing

by Ruth Leubecker

Rooted in community engagement, many towns and counties are responding to the availability of strengthened broadband … but not Washington County.

Having a plan in place expressing and explaining a community’s need for improved broadband provides a legup on enhanced connectivity. 

“But it’s not a requirement,” explains Peggy Schaffer, executive director of ConnectME. “We’ve been engaged with over 200 towns. We’ve funded some of them. And some of them have been funded by their counties.”
