Accurate information is one of the key elements to an effective expansion of broadband. To that end we have compiled the best information that we have in this series of spreadsheets. This is information we will use in our June 2019 grant rounds to determine eligibility for infrastructure grants.
We fully understand that our data isn’t complete and there are inaccuracies as a result of the way information is reported. The excel spreadsheets below are separated by County and by town with street ranges that have service less than 25/3 Mbps, which gives a starting point of who is unserved in Maine.
To help address the inherent inaccuracies in the data ConnectME has on broadband service in Maine, we are asking Mainers to do a speedtest with an organization called M-Lab. Measurement Labs (M-Lab) provides the largest collection of open Internet performance data on the planet. M-Lab is a consortium of research, industry, and public-interest partners dedicated to providing an ecosystem for the open, verifiable measurement of global network performance. The speed test data collected is made available to the public, allowing ConnectME and anyone else to build on a common pool of network measurements that we can utilize to improve our understand of the broadband landscape in Maine.
