This set of maps are visual tools for helping citizens and decision-makers search for solutions to their broadband connectivity problems. Like electricity and telephone in the 20th century, and water and sewer in the 19th century, broadband Internet access is the must-have infrastructure of the 21st century. Unfortunately, not everyone is well-connected. In fact, some folks can't get high-speed Internet access at all.
By combining data from the broadband service providers about Internet service availability and quality, the maps display each MD House of Delegates and Senate district by its overall broadband connectivity per census block. Clicking on a district or the link below provides a large scale map of broadband connectivity by census block in each Maryland legislative district according to access and available service.
The maps have a dimension of 24 " x 36 ", and are in .pdf file format. Although the size of these files are larger than most printers can print, they can be printed in the standard size of 8.5" x 11" by selecting the "Fit to Paper" option under the "Page Scaling" drop-down menu.
The source of the data contained within these maps was calculated by the staff at the ESRGC using data gathered as part of the Maryland Broadband Mapping Initiative. For more information on what broadband is available in your area, please interact with the Maryland Broadband Map.
