The Gigabit Revolution is an amazing technology improvement proposed in our region, directly impacting Ephrata, York and Hanover.
BACKGROUND: In 2016, UFD is building a new point-to-point ultra-high speed broadband fiber network from New York City to York, PA to Ashburn, VA. While most NYC to DC broadband traces the I-95/Amtrak corridor, the UFD fiber creates a new route for redundancy, national safety and many other significant benefits. Within a ten mile radius of the UFD fiber there are more than 4 million Pennsylvanians, thousands of businesses, hundreds of communities, and more than 100 existing broadband companies. With input from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, business & community leaders and other stakeholders, the UFD – Pennsylvania Gigabit Revolution – Broadband Outreach and Aggregation Project is designed to maximize the major impacts this Project can help deliver through its 5 county footprint.
