Delaware Broadband Initiative

Delaware's Governor Carney talking to a group of people about ensuring that every Delaware resident and business has access to high-speed internet service.

Delaware Broadband Initiative

Governor John Carney created the Delaware Broadband Office to make sure all Delawareans have access to the full benefits of high-speed internet. Our job is to make sure all Delawareans have access to affordable high-speed internet and that they have the tools and skills to participate in our digital society.

We are at work right now working to connect everyone in Delaware to high-speed internet. If you believe you do not have access to high-speed internet, you can check to see if your address is already in our plan. If you don’t see your address on our map, you can email us at or give us a call at (302) 739-9701. We will respond to all voicemails within 48 business hours.
