Alleghenies Broadband Inc. (ABI) is committed to digital equity in the six-county Southern Alleghenies region by partnering with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and other stakeholders to provide high-speed internet connections and necessary resources to residents and businesses within our community. By working closely with incumbent providers and new entrants, ABI will support the development of broadband infrastructure and emerging technologies throughout the region to bridge the rural broadband gap.
Rural areas throughout the USA face unique challenges in obtaining access to reliable internet services. Extending cable lines over large areas and difficult terrain has led to minimal investment in rural communities with low population density. Particularly in the aftermath of the Coronavirus pandemic where families, businesses, health care providers and schools lacked internet service, we can no longer allow our citizens to go without reliable internet service.
The Southern Alleghenies region is committed to bringing significant investment to our rural communities so we no longer go without reliable, high-speed, affordable internet services.
