WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Monday, July 15th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) awarded $4,280,186 to Bloosurf, a broadband high speed internet provider for rural homes and businesses in Maryland’s First District. According to the FCC, the funds represent “the third wave of support from last year’s successful Connect America Fund Phase II auction… The Connect America Fund Phase II auction is part of a broader effort by the FCC to close the digital divide in rural America.”

Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) made the following statement on the award to Bloosurf:

"My office has worked with Bloosurf for a number of years. Since 2015, we have worked to help rural communities improve access to broadband services. Today, we see that Bloosurf is continuing to provide service with additional funds from the FCC. I applaud the FCC for their award to Bloosurf, and the continuation of their broadband services to our district.”
