You can’t really be successful these days in business, in school or any other activity – without access to high-speed internet. In the counties around Baltimore fibre-optic networks deliver that high-speed access; in the city, it mostly doesn’t exist. Why not, and what’s the best way to fix the problem?

Then, our movie regulars, Jed Dietz of the Maryland Film Festival and Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post, give Tom Hall their picks of some off-the-radar summer films you don’t want to miss.

Plus, a pop-up shop highlighting locally-manufactured products springs to life on North Avenue. We learn what it’s about from the owner of a screen-print textile business and the owner of a sewing company.
