CTC Congratulates One Maryland Broadband Network on Stimulus Funding

The State of Maryland’s One Maryland Broadband Network today received one of the largest Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) grants ever awarded. The $115 million in federal funding, with $40 million in matching contributions from the state and a range of local jurisdictions, will enable the construction of an interconnected fiber-optic broadband network that will reach every county in the state. The network will connect more than 1,000 community anchor institutions, will bring broadband to currently unserved and underserved communities, and will support next-generation public safety systems and other advanced applications.

CTC Technology & Energy is proud to have been part of the team that planned, designed, and engineered the One Maryland project, and to have supported the One Maryland team, led by Howard County and the state Department of Information Technology, throughout the BTOP application process.
