Searsport news: High-speed internet access now available everywhere in Searsport!
Official Gig Town
On Aug. 31, Simon Thorne, representing Fidium Fiber and Consolidated Services, officially welcomed high-speed internet to Searsport, now an "official Gig Town." Without the aggressive energy of our broadband committee to get a $2 million grant from Maine Connectivity Authority, it wouldn’t have happened. Now everyone in Searsport has access to the internet for a nominal cost to get telehealth services, roaming employment, education, and entertainment.
If you are unsure about how to use the internet, the National Digital Equity Center, available through the town website, can help you with that. To find out more about hook-up or to sign up, go to the town of Searsport website.
