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: https://md-queenannescounty2.civicplus.com/1295/Broadband-Advisory-Council
