QAC Broadband Advisory Council Answers Your Questions About Broadband


One of the most common questions and complaints in our local community groups tends to be related to internet service.


Did you know that Queen Anne’s County established a Broadband Advisory Council in 2018? This council advises and provides recommendations to the County Commissioners on the provision of broadband services and infrastructure in Queen Anne’s County. All four districts are represented, and the council has met with every internet provider in the area to discuss their possible involvement in expanding broadband.


A list of frequently asked questions was recently released on our county website which can be located here:

On the right-hand side, you will see a list of common questions and concerns from our residents including several resources and next steps for the expansion of broadband.


Some of the most frequent questions included are:

  • Why won’t QAC allow other ISP’s to “overbuild” (provide duplicate service) where Atlantic Broadband fiber exists?
  • What can I do to get help getting broadband to my community?
  • What type of internet service is available to me, and who are the broadband providers in my area?


Resources included:

  • FCC tool to see providers available to you
  • Cellmapper tool to show all available cell phone towers in your area
  • Links to Surveys from Maryland and QAC requesting information about your service
