capacity is now a critical component to economic development and is emerging as
a strength within the region. This technology holds the promise of eliminating
geography as a concern with respect to our economic growth. Further, the
industry mix here â€“ research labs, factories, educational institutions and
biomedical firms â€“ is such that strong broadband connections are a necessity
for the Bangor Region to be successful. To that end, the Chamber supports:
- Efforts to leverage our assets to bring â€śdata centersâ€ť to our region.
- Economic development strategies that target companies with a high demand for bandwidth.
- Public policies and investments that will allow for greater penetration of high-speed broadband in our market, especially ultra-high-speed connections used by technology companies.
