High Speed Broadband Internet [Merrymeeting Adult Education]

Learn About Broadband

Broadband, shorthand for high-speed internet access, is a valuable tool for businesses, organizations, communities, and individuals. The ability to almost instantly access, interact with, and share large amounts of information via your computer or other device is something ConnectME wants to bring to all of Maine, especially those places currently unserved.

Broadband helps companies grow, attracts new businesses to otherwise isolated places, and allows communities and individuals to keep in touch, organize, plan, and prosper. From Isle au Haut to Machias, Rumford to Sanford, and Fort Kent to Jackson, ConnectME is helping communities, businesses, and individuals to live better, work smarter, and get connected with the rest of the state and world.

Merrymeeting Adult Education periodically presents information about high speed broadband internet connectivity.   These presentations inform the audience on what broadband internet is, how to test the speed of their internet service and more.   If you are interested in learning more about these presentations, please contact our office at 207-729-7323 Ext. 4.

This community education program is presented in cooperation with the Maine Department of Education and the ConnectME Authority.  Learn more at
