The State of Maryland is providing programs aimed at bridging the gap for consumers to help reduce, and eventually eliminate, the number of Marylanders that are unable to have access to affordable broadband connectivity.
Maryland Emergency Broadband Benefit Program
This program will provide a subsidy up to $15/month against a low-income household's internet service cost. This subsidy is in addition to the $30 per month provided by the
Federal ACP program; meaning eligible consumers can obtain a total benefit of up to $45 discount each month. Households must be enrolled in the
Federal ACP program to receive this benefit.
Consumers should speak directly with their internet service providers for participation.
Participating Internet Service Providers
We encourage every Marylander to take part in the
SpeedSurvey. The data we obtain from the survey will help us better understand Marylanders' needs as well as verify Federal Communications Commission data which will help our planning efforts to address internet access for all Marylanders.
