The Connect Cumberland Broadband Initiative is well on its way to bringing Broadband to unserved and underserved areas of Cumberland County! Cumberland County is pleased to announce that the Board of Supervisors awarded a contract to Kinex Telecom at their April 2022 meeting for the purpose of providing broadband services to unserved and underserved areas of Cumberland County. This effort combined with the County’s previous efforts with Firefly Fiber Broadband will make a huge impact on the lives of residents within Cumberland County and make tremendous progress towards meeting their high speed Internet needs. The Connect Cumberland Broadband Initiative is bringing a total infrastructure investment of $15,839,060 to Cumberland County. The County has contributed $586,250 or 3.7% of the total cost of the project. The Initiative is a positive example of local government leveraging partnerships and resources with other governmental agencies and private entities to meet the needs of Cumberland’s residents. Anticipated completion of all identified areas is slated for 2024-2026. For complete details and maps related to the Connect Cumberland Broadband Initiative, please click on the following link.
