THE WINTERPORT INTERNET ACCESSIBILITY COMMITTEE NEEDS YOUR HELP!
The Winterport Internet Accessibility Committee is a newly formed committee that is tasked with gathering information regarding the availability of broadband internet within the Town of Winterport; identifying deficiencies in coverage, reliability and/or speeds; providing residents with that information; and providing guidance to the Town of Winterport's Town Council regarding possible future investments in broadband infrastructure within the Town of Winterport. The Maine Broadband Coalition offers a speed testing platform designed to show where service is and isn't available thereby supporting planning and grant applications. The Internet Accessibility Committee respectfully requests that you go to the following link to run a quick internet speed test. Speed Test: https://www.mainebroadbandcoalition.org/landing
