Mastriano announces over $800,000 in grant funding to expand broadband internet in Franklin County

Harrisburg- Senator Mastriano (PA-33) is pleased to report that the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) has approved $839,000 in new grant funding to expand high-speed broadband internet connection in Franklin County. The new funding will go towards the installment of 19 miles of fiber and coaxial cable.

Specially, the funds will be distributed to the unserved communities of Metal and Peters Townships.   An unserved area is defined as a designated geographic area in which households or businesses do not have access to at least 25 megabits per second downstream speeds and around three megabits per second upstream speeds.

I`m pleased that these unserved areas of Franklin County will now have the infrastructure needed to ensure faster internet connection,” said Senator Mastriano. “In today’s competitive economic environment, access to high-speed internet is crucial for our business owners and farmers. I look forward to the continued expansion of high-speed internet throughout the 33rd District.”
