Acknowledging that broadband is essential to success in the commonwealth, Governor Tom Wolf today celebrated the creation of Pennsylvania's Broadband Development Authority, which will manage at least $100 million in federal aid to coordinate the rollout of broadband across Pennsylvania. "Broadband is as essential today as electricity and water. But there is a digital divide in Pennsylvania," said Gov. Wolf. "This Broadband Authority will close the divide and ensure consistent, affordable, quality statewide broadband to keep children learning, businesses growing, and opportunities abounding for all Pennsylvanians." In December, Gov. Wolf signed House Bill 2071 to create the Pennsylvania Broadband Authority to serve as a one stop shop for all things broadband in Pennsylvania.
