AUGUSTA, Maine - The ConnectMe Authority, the group charged with improving access in Maine to broadband services, is holding a series of public hearings this month on what it should include in its new three-year plan.

"We really want to hear how people are affected by not having access to broadband - you know, their ability, perhaps, to communicate with family and friends, not being able to work from home," says ConnectMe Authority Chair Jean Wilson.
