Broadband Expansion

A key part of GPCOG's work to support broadband in the region is through the hosting and leadership with the Maine Broadband Coalition. The Coalition is a statewide network of organizations, companies, governmental agencies, and community inititatives with the shared goal extending and enabling high-speed internet for everyone in Maine.  Led by an advisory committee of over 40 entities, the Coalition serves as the hub for broadband policy, practice and partnerships.
