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

A campaign to make sure internet maps in Maine are right.
The federal government thinks most Maine people have reliable internet service. Are they right?
MCA needs your help to correct the dots and make sure that the Federal Communications Commission has accurate information about broadband accessibility and quality. Starting in December 2022, Mainers can go to broadbandmap.fcc.com enter their address and check the map. Your input will improve the accuracy of the map and result in federal funding for broadband being targeted to the areas of Maine that need it most. Please help us Correct the Dots before January 12, 2023!
