Broadband Survey Deadline Is Tuesday

Broadband Survey

Reliable internet access in St. Mary’s County has been a top priority of the county commissioners, and on September 15 $100,000 was allocated to assess local broadband capabilities.

For the first phase of assessments, the county commissioners are releasing a communitywide survey of existing internet services. The St. Mary’s County Broadband Assessment Project survey for households is posted here.

The household survey deadline is Tuesday, November 24, 2020.

More than 2,400 households and 90 employers have responded to broadband assessment surveys.

The survey is designed to spur broadband options and more broadband investment across the county. Affordable and fast broadband is critical to local economies, education, and the real estate market.
