Mainers are using the internet at what some experts are calling unprecedented levels - working, trying to attend school, and amusing themselves at home - all in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. But is Maine actually prepared for its population to live life online?

PORTLAND, Maine - Maine's supreme court has ordered an internet service provider to pay more than $406,000 that was supposed to go to a broadband service group and the former Broadband Sustainability Fund.
 
The state and the ConnectME Authority sued Great Works Internet's corporate parent three years ago for failing to pay the fee imposed on broadband service provided over fiber cables for its high-speed internet project, Three Rings Binder.
