With Kent County, Maryland providing their citizens and businesses with high speed broadband, now Queen Anne’s County Commissioners will be holding a public hearing on bringing broadband to their county as reported by Queen Anne’s County.

From Queen Anne’s County:

At their March 28 meeting, the commissioners passed a motion to hold a public hearing and move forward with contract negotiations with FTS for design, engineering, construction, operations and maintenance of a fiber optic broadband network in Queen Anne’s County. A date has not yet been set for the public hearing.

FTS Fiber is a dark fiber provider offering carrier-class network infrastructure in both rural areas and major markets of the United States. FTS has two office locations in Maryland.

Kent County’s fiber program, a public/private partnership with FTS, won a MACo Best Practices Award in 2016.
