    “In today’s ‘connected’ world, the remaining 25 percent are considered underserved or unserved (receive no broadband service or service less than 25 Mbps download or 3 Mbps upload),” the charge to the Broadband Committee states.
    The committee’s purpose is to provide the selectmen with information regarding, “the pros, cons, options, and costs involved providing broadband service to unserved or underserved areas of town.”
