About the MCA
High-speed Broadband for Maine
Established in 2021, the Maine Connectivity Authority (MCA) is a quasi-governmental agency charged with achieving universal access of affordable high-speed broadband in Maine.
The MCA will work to ensure three goals: 1.) That effective, accessible connectivity be universally available in the state; 2.) that there be secure, affordable, reliable, competitive, sustainable and forward-looking infrastructure that can meet future needs; and 3.) that all residents, businesses and institutions in Maine be able to take full advantage of the economic, health, educational and other opportunities available through connectivity services.
Focusing on projects, places and people, the MCA is advancing digital equity for all Mainers
