December 8, 2022
On Tuesday, Greene County commissioners announced CNX Foundation’s commitment to launch the county’s $1 million broadband expansion project. The donation supports Greene County’s goal to provide complete internet availability for all residents.
Aside from advancing the broadband initiative into phase three, the partnership also progresses Greene County’s efforts to become the first ‘gig-capable’ rural county in Pennsylvania.
