Last week the Wayne County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution seeking a request for proposals from broadband companies to partner with the county to bring high-speed internet to areas where there is none- or at least, poor service.
That’s the latest effort from elected officials there to close significant gaps in service. It’s something that holds the county back in many ways to residents or prospective businesses.
“It’s not something I could live without,” Brian Pincelli, Wayne County’s economic development director told the Finger Lakes Times. “This is all about closing that gap.”
There are approximately 3,4000 households who still don’t have access to high-speed internet service.
