The state is going to distribute thousands of laptops across Maryland in a move to improve internet access. Governor Wes Moore made the announcement on Friday. According to a release from the Office of Statewide Broadband, the 135-thousand Chromebooks will go to underserved communities as part of an effort to ensure Marylanders have the technology required to access reliable high-speed internet. Fifty-thousand laptops will be distributed to Baltimore City. Moore said the devices are a gateway for people to apply for jobs, complete schoolwork, and connect with vital community resources.
