The county has put out a link to a broadband speed test for
towns to get a handle on service quality and unserved areas of
Bridgton. Quality is most often a matter of speed. This data is
most important for the purposes of funding.
Currently Bridgton is seen as having robust coverage (in the 90%
range), which is contrary to experience and puts us out of reach of
available grants that could help cover costs for expanding
broadband in the town. It is also important to uncover actual
speeds versus stated service speeds from your provider. If you do
not have broadband access at your location, there is a place where
you can report that as well. This will be most important to grant
We hope everyone will take a moment to take the test. Click here
