    3. Talkie Communications
      • Note: Recently, Talkie Communications recently received a federal grant from the Rural Development Opportunity Fund to connect unserved or underserved areas. Based on this grant’s auction format, as the lowest bidder (undercutting the price point set by Verizon), Talkie Communications won all the 289 census blocks in QAC. Over 10 years they will receive $3,230,027 ($323,027 annually) to complete this work. Talkie also won most of the remaining areas of Maryland and Delaware, 39,098 areas and $57,065,010. This grant requires that at the end of year three that 40% of the homes in these areas must have service available. Note that since this is a federal grant, QAC is not regulating this activity, nor does the County have any agreements in place to monitor progress.
