MPBN Interviews Markowsky About Maine’s Digital Services

The Maine Public Broadcasting Network spoke with George Markowsky, a computer science professor at the University of Maine, for the report, “Advocates: Maine bringing up the rear in digital services race.” Markowsky said he remembers when Maine was a leader in building Internet access across the country, but today, he says, “We are dead last in the United States.” Markowsky said the state’s political leaders must develop public-private partnerships to build out a fiber network that reaches all types of businesses and individuals.
