Maryland Gov. Hogan Launches $400M Broadband Initiative

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has launched Connect Maryland, a new initiative aiming to address the state’s digital divide by investing $400 million to improve broadband capabilities.

The state invested $100 million to go with $300 million of funds made available from President Biden’s American Rescue Act, the governor’s office said.

Hogan announced the program’s launch Friday in in Snow Hill, where he was joined by Senate President Bill Ferguson, House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones and other local elected officials.

“The state of Maryland has set an ambitious goal of ensuring universal broadband to everyone in every single corner of the state by no later than 2025, and Connect Maryland is the game-changing initiative that is going to get us there,” Hogan said. “This is just one more shining example that we aren’t just committed to fully recovering from the pandemic, but we are committed to coming back even stronger and better than ever before.”
