Thank you for participating in this survey designed by the Telecommunications Association of Maine. We are dedicated to promoting affordable voice and Internet service in rural Maine, and your answers here will help better understand how broadband helps Mainers in all corners of the State. The survey findings will help us develop messaging about the benefits of broadband. Future communications will target Mainers who may already have service as well as those who lack reliable connectivity. This survey should take 7-8 minutes to complete and all answers will remain confidential. For more information, visit tamnet.org.
