Map Highlights Lack of High-Speed Broadband in Rural Maryland

An interactive map generated by the Capital News Service illustrates the high-speed broadband gap between rural and urban counties in Maryland.

The takeaway: In counties that are more urban than rural, the vast majority of people in the county’s rural areas have good access to high speed internet. In counties that are more rural than urban — like most of the Eastern Shore and Western Maryland — people in rural parts of the county are much more likely to get left behind.
