As we extend our state-wide effort to help towns and communities get access broadband funding, we are encouraging towns to sign onto our guiding values. Signing on demonstrates your commitment to ensuring that all Mainers have access to internet. 

 

What Are MBC's Guiding Values?

The Maine Broadband Coalition's guiding values were established in order to ensure that future broadband expansion across Maine achieves three goals: availability, affordability, and accessibility. If your town agrees that these goals are essential, please sign on below to show your support! 

Affordable, reliable, high-quality broadband service is essential for the prosperity of communities across Maine

Success requires learning from past successes and failures using experimentation, innovation, and flexible approaches

Private companies have an important role in developing and running broadband networks

5.

Geography, demographics, and income should not determine access to broadband
