CTC Technology & Energy congratulates Garrett County, Md. on receiving a $250,000 broadband infrastructure grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC). The grant, which will be matched by the County, will fund fiber optic infrastructure and the electronics necessary to provide broadband service to a range of schools and other important County sites.
The ARC-funded project dovetails with the One Maryland Broadband Network, funded under the federal Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), which is constructing fiber across the state to connect more than 1,000 community anchor institutions.
CTC is proud of its ongoing work with the County on broadband planning issues, and commends ARC on recognizing the importance of broadband infrastructure as a tool for economic development in rural communities.
