The County of Berks has partnered with the Berks Alliance, the United Way of Berks County and the Wyomissing Foundation to identify opportunities to improve the availability and accessibility of high speed internet access typically referred to as broadband, in the county. Lit Communities Broadband has been hired to perform a feasibility study and other necessary evaluations that will enable the County to leverage state and federal funds dedicated to improving access to broadband.
Many other partners have joined to support this initiative, including:
Berks County Community Foundation
Berks County Intermediate Unit
The City of Reading
Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical Center
Reading Public Library
Reading School District
UPMC For You Health Plan
The support and resources of these partners have allowed this effort to expand beyond simply providing access to broadband, but to also address gaps in digital literacy and improve digital equity.
