Digital Equity

Digital equity is the condition when everyone is able to fully benefit from high-speed internet. Our Digital Equity Plan identifies communities in Cumberland County in need of high-speed internet and provides recommendations for solutions that should be funded.  

This plan is part of the Regional & Tribal Broadband Partners Program—a state-wide initiative to deploy, sustain, and maximize the benefits of broadband infrastructure investment. The program is administered by the Maine Connectivity Authority in partnership with the National Digital Equity Center and Maine Broadband Coalition. 

The plan will be finalized in May, 2023. It'll then be incorporated into the Maine State Digital Equity Plan, which will open opportunities for implementation funding.
