Four internet access improvement projects are planned for three townships in Westmoreland County, task force members said Thursday.
During a presentation at Ligonier Valley High School, county leaders said Ligonier, Fairfield and Derry townships will be seeing upgrades in their broadband service.
“Over the past six months, the task force and the county staff have been working with Michael Baker International Group to develop and deliver a feasibility report of an existing internet infrastructure and service conditions,” said county planning director Jason Rigone. “The report establishes specific goals for the next five years. We want to ensure that everyone has access to adequate internet service.”
