VETRO, Inc. CEO Statement Congratulates the ConnectMaine Authority and 35+ Towns For Successful Broadband Grant Awards
May 27, 2021, Portland, Maine:
On May 26, the ConnectMaine Authority approved $8,671,323 of community broadband and provider expansion grants. This approval of funds comes less than a year after Mainers voted to allocate $15 million in bond funding for broadband projects.
Following is a statement from VETRO CEO, Will Mitchell:
“The unprecedented amount of funds released for Maine communities and Internet Service Providers to expand broadband, and the speed with which the grants have been reviewed and awarded, demonstrates the strength of the broadband vision and the implementation of the state’s broadband plan by ConnectMaine,” said Will Mitchell, CEO and Co-founder of VETRO.
”We are proud to be part of this groundbreaking work to bring high-speed broadband connectivity to previously overlooked communities across Maine. Mapping is key to broadband infrastructure projects, and VETRO FiberMap is unique in its ability to serve the community broadband planning groups, their engineering and ISP partners, and now the ConnectMaine Authority as well.”
In April, the ConnectMaine Authority selected VETRO’s Broadband Intelligence Platform to serve as the platform of record and central hub for all planning, mapping, and infrastructure data relevant to broadband mapping in the state. The platform will provide easy collaboration across the ecosystem of stakeholders and deliver transparency, accountability, scalability, efficiency and impact around the deployment of public dollars into internet infrastructure projects.
