May 29, 2020 — (Hagerstown, MD) Antietam Broadband announced today that retroactive to mid-March the company has permanently removed broadband data usage caps for all customers. Antietam Broadband was an early participant in the FCC’s Keep Americans Connected pledge, which temporarily lifted fees to customers during the Pandemic. Removing data usage caps, in part, is
a result of learnings from the COVID-19 Pandemic as more people worked and learned remotely. During this period customers moved into broadband packages that more accurately
reflected their broadband needs. “These are uncertain times”, said Brian Lynch, President, Antietam Broadband, “we felt a need to give customers as much certainty over their bill as
possible. Eliminating data usage caps means that customers will know the exact amount of their broadband bill every month.”
Antietam has kept pace with the unprecedented broadband demand during these past two months by adding backhaul, server capacity and local nodes. “Since the pandemic began, we
have seen as much increase in broadband usage as we generally would see over the course of a year, said Lynch. As Washington County’s broadband leader, Antietam offers a wide range of
broadband speed tiers to fit any household.

Lynch. “COVID-19 has helped us all realize their unselfish dedication to the good of our community”, said Lynch.
“We are proud to serve the residents of Washington County. During the pandemic we are grateful to the residents who sheltered at home and allowed us to do our jobs”, said Danielle Weaver, Washington County Director of Public Relations & Marketing.
