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, high-quality broadband service is critical for the prosperity of all of Maine's communities.
Learn from past successes and failures while also experimenting, innovating, and using flexible approaches
Limited public resources must be used effectively to address needs and build enduring, competitive investments.
Private companies have an important role in developing and running broadband networks
Geography, demographics, and income should not determine access to broadband
Strong community leadership is a precondition to public investments
Broadband speed in rural areas should be comparable to speed in urban areas
Market forces and private investment alone will not deliver universal broadband
