Southern Wayne Broadband Expansion

Cost Effective Internet

Recognizing the need for cost effective broadband Internet service, the County is working to expand the existing infrastructure of LHTC Broadband in the Waymart / Canaan Township area to the Business Park on Routes 191/196 in Sterling Township.


The county received a $300,000 grant in support of the project from the Local Share (Gaming) Account for Mount Airy Casino.

LHTC Broadband recently completed the engineering/permitting phase of the project and will begin installing the 144-count fiber line this Fall. Approximately 12.5 miles of new telecommunication fiber will run along Route 196, through the Hamlin four corners, to the Sterling Business & Technology Park. Internet speeds of 25 Mbps, 50Mbps or greater will be available when the project is complete.
