Monroe County Broadband & Telecommunications

Monroe County is connected!

Monroe County’s broadband telecommunication services are well ahead of those offered by our regional neighbors. According to a study issued by the Affinity Group in 2005, we have ubiquitous access to high speed broadband throughout the county.

In May 2008, the PMEDC spawned Enosis | The Broadband Facilitators. Enosis, a name drawn from the Greek word referring to union between communities, was developed as a result of Pennsylvania Act 183, the Broadband Outreach and Aggregation Fund (BOAF) and E-Fund Implementation. Under the guidelines provided by the act, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED)’s Technology Investment Office provided the funds to initiate local programs concerning the benefits, use and acquisition of broadband services and aggregating or combining customer demand.

Enosis has four broad organizational goals:

  1. Work as an entity and through the PMEDC to market the region’s technology strengths
  2. Aggregate commercial demand for high-capacity broadband services
  3. Assist schools in finding ways to get the most of their broadband capacity
  4. Aggregate residential demand for broadband services in underserved areas
