The Center for Rural Pennsylvania is currently sponsoring research, Broadband Availability and Access in Rural Pennsylvania, to analyze and assess broadband availability in Pennsylvania, and is asking Pennsylvania residents to participate in the research by taking the broadband speed test at http://broadbandtest.us.
The test results will help Pennsylvania State University researchers, led by Professor Sascha Meinrath, to measure actual internet speeds. The test will also provide participants with information about their broadband connection.
If you’d like to help the Center for Rural Pennsylvania and our research partners at Penn State University map broadband access in Pennsylvania, please visit http://broadbandtest.us/ and take the broadband speed test. Thanks for your help.
SEDA-COG Technology Assessment Available to Local Government
Municipalities and local governments in an 11-county region can get a technology assessment and action recommendation that includes a free computer from SEDA-Council of Governments.
This service assesses existing computer software, servers, network and connectivity, storage and backup, hardware, and more. SEDA-COG’s Information Technology Group then makes a recommendation based on the assessment. Recommended changes may be implemented by another vendor or SEDA-COG.
The technology assessment and recommendation will be provided for $450, which includes a free computer while supplies last.
For more information and to learn about other services, contact SEDA-COG’s Scott Kramer at 570-524-4491 or firstname.lastname@example.org. [Download Flyer]
