We are working to bring better broadband to Berks County.
We know that many homes and businesses do not have access to the affordable and reliable high speed internet that they need.
We need your help
to access our fair share of state and federal dollars designated for improving broadband access in our community.
What is broadband?
“Broadband” is the transmission of large amounts of data over a high speed internet connection. “Bandwidth” is the maximum amount of data transmitted over an internet connection in a given amount of time. Put simply, broadband is high-speed internet that is continuously connected without interruption.
Please consider telling us a bit about your current broadband access.

We ask for your contact information because it is the most efficient way to access state and federal broadband dollars. This allows us to make you aware of newly available broadband services as they are made available to you. It also expedites the verification process as we use this information to apply for state and federal funds.
Please enter a valid phone number.
We need your address because it will help us to identify specific locations that may not have access to adequate, reliable and affordable internet services. This allows us to review these areas for broadband construction.
