Appleton, Maine

Incorporated 1829

The Broadband Committee was formed to look at how to improve internet access and speeds for residents of Appleton. It is no longer a committee of the Town.

Tidewater Networks completed a significant rollout of fiber to many parts of town that were not previously served at the end of 2020.

Tidewater also received a grant from ConnectME in June 2021 which enabled them to complete the rollout of fiber to all Appleton roads in their coverage area

Below is a map showing the roads that fiber is now or soon to be available in town.

New roads added this year are:

- Back Road - Completed

- Pettengill Lane - Completed

- Gushee Road - Completed

- Lodge Lane - Completed

- Hillside Road - Completed

- Guinee Ridge Road (Burkettville road to Union town line) - Completed

- Appleton Ridge Road (Burkettville road to Union town line) - Completed
