Governor Wolf Continues Push for Statewide Broadband in Centre County April 24, 2019 Press Release, Restore Pennsylvania State College, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf continued his push to expand broadband access to all Pennsylvanians by joining the PA Priorities Summit to highlight how Restore Pennsylvania would help address the rural broadband crisis.“Broadband is as essential in today’s society as electricity and water. Not having broadband limits your ability to do business, find a job, access information, and so much more,” said Governor Wolf. “Our lack of broadband access keeps children from accessing online assignments, prevents businesses from marketing themselves, and health care facilities can’t share information. We can and should be doing more to tackle this issue and Restore Pennsylvania is the answer.”Restore Pennsylvania will invest $4.5 billion over the next four years in significant high-impact projects throughout the commonwealth to help catapult Pennsylvania ahead of every state in the country in terms of technology, development, and infrastructure. The massive rebuilding plan funded through a commonsense severance tax will help commonwealth communities address blight, expand broadband access, mitigate the effects of localized flooding, and expand green infrastructure.Later today, the governor will visit Penns Valley School District to hear from students and faculty about how the lack of reliable, high-speed internet is impacting their education and everyday lives. At least 8 percent of students in Penns Valley School District have only dial-up internet access at home.“Lack of quality internet access means our children miss out on learning opportunities and their parents lack easy access to important school information,” Governor Wolf said. “Our students, parents, and our teachers deserve better, and we can provide that through Restore Pennsylvania.”“If we intend to have our rural students be prepared to learn online, collaborate, and create in a truly personalized way, then they need the tools to do so,” said Dr. Brian Griffith, Superintendent, Penns Valley School District. “Access to affordable and reliable broadband internet service is imperative to equity across the commonwealth and nation.”Restore Pennsylvania will provide funding to completely bridge the digital divide in every community in Pennsylvania, making Pennsylvania a better place to work, do business, and live. Grants will be available to support installation of infrastructure to bring high speed internet to every corner of the commonwealth. Funding will support every phase of the process from feasibility testing to connection.View the full Restore Pennsylvania plan. SHARE Email Facebook Twitter
