Southern Maryland is a largely rural area. As such, high speed internet access is limited in many areas. Depending upon where you live, you might be able to choose from one or more of the following types of service: Cable provided by either Comcast (primarily Charles and Calvert county) or Metrocast Communications (primarily in St. Mary's County), DSL or FiOS (very limited areas) provided by Verizon, Wireless provided by SomdWireless, satellite provided by DirecWay, or any number of local and national dial-up ISPs.
