Families in the Oldtown area are now eligible to submit an application for assistance with the cost of obtaining broadband internet services through Fibercreek Networks, LLC. The new broadband access is part of a recently approved grant made possible by CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, Associated Charities, and the County United Way. Fifty houses in the Oldtown area can receive upgraded broadband access by completing a questionnaire on Fibercreek’s web page. If households qualify, they will then be directed to Associated Charities to complete an application for assistance with the monthly costs of internet services. Twenty-five qualifying households will be eligible for the help.
