27 Sep Broadband for Economic Development
Recently, the EPA and the Department of Agriculture have selected Eastport and Millinocket, Maine as partners in an initiative to help small towns use broadband service for economic development.
“‘Broadband projects can bring more than connectivity to communities,’ said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. ‘By supporting economic growth in downtown areas, broadband can help spur new business, create jobs, and protect public health and the environment.'”
