HARRISBURG – More than 327,000 Pennsylvanians will gain access to high-speed internet service through the Federal Communications Commission’s Rural Digital Opportunity Fund Phase I Auction. Thirteen PA providers successfully bid in the auction and will provide high-speed internet access in locations across the state that are underserved or do not have access to broadband that meets current federal standard. The FCC will allocate $368.7 million to these providers over the next 10 years. Virtually every PA county will benefit from the broadband build out supported by the funding. Nearly a million Pennsylvanians lack access to reliable high-speed internet, according to the FCC.
