To the Editor;
In Maine, internet access is growing. Service is getting better, speeds are getting faster and more people are getting connected every day. Expanded broadband access is creating new opportunities for Mainers. From new employment opportunities to distance learning to telehealth, and everything in between, growing broadband access is revolutionizing the way we live.

Unfortunately, bureaucrats in Washington want to derail the progress that’s been made and overregulate our internet. They want to impose Depression-era rules on our 21st century internet, slowing down our access to broadband and hurting families and businesses throughout our state, particularly rural Maine.

Overregulating the internet will push households across the state behind nationwide statistics on high-speed internet access. We need our lawmakers to stand up for Maine and stop Congress from taking over our internet.
