Wednesday Briefing Set for Pottstown Off-Ramp on the Digital Super-Highway

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Pottstown Area Industrial Development Inc.

The Pennsylvania Gigabit Revolution is a broadband initiative to maximize every possible synergy for six "off-ramps" from an ultra-high capacity fiber broadband system to be constructed in 2016 running from New York City through the Pottstown area to Ashburn, Virginia.

The program is funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Broadband Outreach and Aggregation Fund.

Presently, most ultra-high capacity fiber between NYC and DC runs along the Amtrak/I-95 corridor. York-based, United Fiber & Data (UFD) is building this ultra-high capacity fiber broadband to improve redundancy, capacity, and safety. 

Like interchanges on interstate highways, the UFD fiber creates an opportunity for communities that maximize an "off-ramp" to this digital super-highway.

Representatives of UFD and Business Information Group, Inc. will be hosting a briefing in Pottstown at 1:30 p.m. onWednesday, Feb. 17, in the Community Room of Montgomery County Community College, 101 College Drive, Pottstown. 

The public is encouraged to attend. 

This meeting was originally scheduled for January 25, but was postponed due to the weather.
