Broadband for Vienna - new WKLCBA website

Keep in touch with the progress on providing high-speed internet access to Vienna at the Western Kennebec Lakes Community Broadband Association (WKLCBA) website here

In case you missed the recent Zoom webinar, scroll to the bottom and view a recording.

The WKLCBA is a coalition of six towns collaborating to investigate solutions that provide affordable, reliable, high-speed internet service to our rural communities. Our goal is to improve our regional network to deliver broadband internet to all citizens and businesses, both now and into the future. The participating towns are Fayette, Leeds, Mount Vernon, Readfield, Vienna, and Wayne.

Fast Internet Is Coming To Vienna (We hope!)

On Monday July 20th there is a meeting about an ongoing project to improve our Internet service.  You can attend this meeting from your desk at home!  Connect up using your computer and a program called Zoom.  Or just call in on your phone.  You will be able to listen and also ask a question or voice an opinion.  Using your computer won’t cost you a penny.  If you call in on the phone there may be toll charges depending on your telephone service plan.

The meeting is being presented by a 6 town co-operative group that has moved a pretty fair ways down the road toward getting high speed Internet installed for everyone in the 6 towns.  The Selectpersons in each town have been kept in the loop as the project developed.  Now you can learn where the project stands at the moment and the several steps that need to be taken to in the near future to make fast (broadband) Internet a reality in Vienna, Mount Vernon, Wayne, Leeds, Readfield and Fayette.  Join us to hear how we are working to get service just as good as they have in Portland!
