The Town will be partnering with Lincolnville Communications, Inc. (LCI) to apply for a ConnectME Infrastructure Grant this June 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 85% of the homes/business located in the project area (green area) to sign onto the support letter for the project (either online at lcifiber.net/bowdoinham or at the Town Office).
In addition, LCI needs 50% of the homes/business to sign-up for 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. Your signature on this application only authorizes the LCI to begin the process of researching and arranging for service at your location. You are not financially obligated at this time. Once it has been determined that the service(s) can be provided, a Customer Service Representative will contact you by phone or email to answer any questions you may have and to verify that you would like to proceed.
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.
