Gov. Tom Wolf signed into law House Bill 2071, which establishes the PA Broadband Development Authority to provide broadband internet access to unserved or underserved residents, and provides for powers and duties of the authority.

This legislation will help bring high-speed internet to students, businesses and residents across Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Broadband Development Authority created by this bill would help manage a minimum of $100 million in federal aid the state will receive for the broadband rollout in a coordinated and strategic way to support the construction of new towers, lines and broadband equipment and other uses in line with federal law and guidance.
