Access to broadband is essential, now more than ever, to keep pace with the global economy and prepare citizens to compete in the modern world. Easton Velocity will embark on a five-year project to provide broadband access to a substantial number of residents and businesses with insufficient service in Talbot County. Providing this critical infrastructure will positively impact numerous quality of life issues including employment, healthcare, education, and social connections and help drive economic prosperity. Easton Velocity, a service of Easton Utilities, is committed to keeping our community connected with fast, reliable internet service backed by local, knowledgeable Tech Support professionals and exceptional customer service.
“The need for rural broadband has never been more apparent than it is now – as our nation manages the coronavirus national emergency. Access to telehealth services, remote learning for school children, and remote business operations all require access to broadband,” said Secretary Perdue. “I am so proud of our rural communities who have been working day in and day out, just like they always do, producing the food and fiber America depends on. We need them more than ever during these trying times, and expanding access to this critical infrastructure will help ensure rural America prospers for years to come.”
