Internet Service in Maine

Largely rural Maine has less high speed Internet accessibility than many other states in the country. Only 94.2% of the state’s population can access 10 Mbps download speed wired or wireless Internet. 26.6% of those living in Maine have no Internet connection they can use.

Yet there are options in more heavily populated parts of the state. In Maine, available Internet technology includes DSL for 93.3% of the state, wireless Internet for 97.3% of the state, cable Internet for 88.5% of the population, and fiber Internet for a mere 1.7% of the state. More than 75% of the population has the choice of 3 or more ISPs, which means that those who do have high speed Internet availability have options to consider, which is always an advantage for consumers.
