Description

Cambria Connected provides innovative high-speed wireless broadband services to all portions of Cambria County, including many areas that had no access to broadband previously. Furthermore, this project demonstrates that funding for one project can effectively be used to enhance others and provide great benefit to the entire county.

With Cambria Connected network’s open-access design, new private-sector competition has been introduced in the county for broadband services, with the effect of both lower costs and increased availability of high-speed Internet and data services to businesses and residential customers.
