ConnectME Infrastructure Grant Informational Meeting

Event Location

Bowdoinham Fire Station, 57 Post Road

The Town will be partnering with Lincolnville Communications, Inc. (LCI) to apply for a ConnectME Infrastructure Grant this spring in hopes of bringing high-speed internet to the unserved areas of Bowdoinham. To make our best case to win the highly competitive ConnectME grant, we need to show that the service is wanted by residents.  Residents can sign up for LCI’s internet service by submitting a signed pre-application with LCI.  Residents who submit a signed pre-application will not be obligated for any payments unless we are selected for the ConnectME grant and not until LCI’s fiber optic broadband is connected directly to their home.  To sign up for service, complete LCI's online Service Application.

LCI is a family owned business headquartered in Nobleboro, Maine with 50 employees.  LCI has the largest “Fiber to the Home” network in Midcoast Maine, providing fiber optic broadband from Belfast to Bath.  To date, LCI has successfully completed 12 ConnectME projects in the Midcoast. You can learn more about LCI at

To learn more about this project, please join us at the Bowdoinham Fire Station.  Refreshments will be provided.
