More than 43% of county residents who participated in a study of Westmoreland County’s broadband have little to no internet service, according to preliminary results announced Thursday.

Since July, the county has conducted a survey of homes and businesses to gauge broadband connectivity and early findings indicated that as much as 71% of those who participated have internet download speeds below national averages and are considered to be underserved.
