Study & Survey Results
The Broadband Data Collection & Feasibility Study includes several key data collection and planning efforts to develop informed action steps to bridge the digital divide.
Westmoreland County Planning and Development, along with a Taskforce of core community leaders, led the development and provided the foundation for this study.
Goals for Broadband Improvements
Public and stakeholder participation helped establish five goals for broadband improvements in the county. These goals will guide the next steps in the planning process and identify the leadership roles needed to support broadband advancement.

This boots-on-the-ground effort determined which locations in Westmoreland County are unserved or have limited fixed or mobile broadband. An online survey allowed residents and business owners to identify gaps in high-speed service.
