On Wednesday June 18th, the Maryland Board of Public Works approved by a unanimous vote a Wetlands Permit for the Maryland Broadband Cooperative.

This permit will allow Maryland Broadband to build and install fiber optic cable starting in Southern Maryland, running under the Chesapeake Bay crossing over to the Eastern Shore.

The permit has been a true cooperation between Maryland Broadband and the State of Maryland ( through the Departments of Environment and Natural Resources) to install this much needed fiber optic cable while preserving & protecting our beautiful state.

We thank Governor O’Malley, Comptroller Franchot, and Treasurer Kopp for their continued and steadfast support of the Maryland Broadband Cooperative and our mission of providing world-class internet services to rural portions of our State.
