Frederick County has contracted with CTC Technology and Energy to complete a countywide broadband feasibility study.

The Frederick News-Post reports:

According to the contract between the county and CTC, the technology consulting firm will produce a written report that addresses the following, among other areas:

  • Current and future needs of broadband service, based on county demographics.
  • Estimate of any possible project costs and timelines.
  • Any current providers and where current technology exists.
  • How much stakeholders should play a role in the evaluation process.

Tom Dixon, chief information officer of the county’s Interagency Information Technologies Division, said the state and county will split the cost of the study through Gov. Larry Hogan’s Office of Rural Broadband.
