Who the Connectivity Plan Covers












Broadband Should Be Available and Affordable to the 10-County Southwest PA Region
Rural and urban areas in our region are lacking affordable access to internet and equipment that is fast and reliable. This impacts the quality of life for our residents and communities.

The plan will also serve the region’s most vulnerable populations who are not served or underserved by current connectivity.

Communications Tool Kit

The resources in the communications tool kit aims to provide helpful resources and materials to assist stakeholders and other organizations in promoting and encouraging engagement in the Internet Usage Survey that will be open through December 5, 2021. These resources include email blast materials, social media materials, and press release materials.


Please help us in sharing the story by using the resources in the toolkit to promote the survey. Click the button below to be taken to the communications tool kit page.

Share Your Input!

If you missed a workshop or simply have an experience or thought to share about broadband access in your county, we’d love to hear from you. The Southwestern Pennsylvania Connected initiative’s goal is to talk to and hear from individuals like you so we can develop a plan that reflects the true needs of the region’s communities and businesses.
