The public has an opportunity to share high-speed Internet (broadband) issues at meetings that will guide a study to help address broadband needs in four counties. Attendees also will hear more information about the study and how it may help them.
The Rural Broadband Coverage and Feasibility Study is being conducted in Clinton, Lycoming, Northumberland, and Union counties. Representatives of local businesses, education, and healthcare institutions, and the general public are welcome to attend the one-hour meetings.
SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG), a community and economic development agency in Lewisburg, is spearheading the efforts to address gaps in rural broadband coverage and has contracted with Design Nine Inc. to do the study.
