Lakes Region Towns Collaborate to Boost Internet Speed

by Tess Wrobleski, Lakes Region Weekly

Inspired by an interest in expanding broadband, or high-speed Internet, Windham, Gray, Raymond and Standish municipal leaders collaborated recently on an assessment of Internet service in the region.

To no one’s surprise, Windham’s is slow.

In a 35-page report published earlier this month, Tilson Technology, an information technology company in Portland, outlined the region’s infrastructure for Internet service, the community’s needs and desires for online access, and offered suggestions to the towns for improving access.
