Broadband And Electricity To Submerge Under Bay

The Maryland Broadband Cooperative and Pepco will use a below-seabed corridor to improve Internet service and electricity supply on the Eastern Shore. Mid-Atlantic Power Pathway project manager Vince Maione says officials want one utility corridor across the Chesapeake Bay to provide both services, not just the proposed 230-mile high voltage power transmission line. Cooperative CEO Patrick Mitchell says another crossing will improve residential and commercial Internet service in rural areas on the Eastern Shore.
