Senator Barbara Mikulski touted the Maryland Broadband Network saying that Wor-Wic Community College will be the first school on the Eastern Shore to go live.
The Maryland Democrat says that as of July the state is expected to have completed 128 miles broad band construction establishing the foundation for wiring the Eastern Shore.
Once the network is in operation the connection will allow Wor-Wic to consolidate Internet services.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the Network is expected to bring high-speed Internet to the Lower Shore to those who have never had access to the World Wide Web.
It will also provide much faster speeds to allow businesses and education institutions to expand their capabilities.
