[ARCHIVED] MML Supports Bill to Promote Broadband Deployment

legsession2020photo.statehouse.175.20511687_l

This year there have been many bills introduced in the General Assembly that address the issue of expanding broadband access in the State; HB 1328 takes a different approach from the rest. In addition to setting up a fund to provide grants to expand high-speed Internet access, the bill has a dig once provision to help cut the cost for Internet providers to install their infrastructure. Essentially, when certain construction projects are approved to open up a roadway the Internet providers may join the project to install Internet cable at a reduced cost. This also has a side benefit of reducing the amount of time that a roadway is disturbed if multiple entities are working in it at the same time. MML supports this bill, as does the Maryland Association of Counties.
