Ready, Set, Connect!
Ready, Set, Connect! is a television news special produced by WQLN TV addressing Pennsylvania’s aggressive commitment to statewide broadband access. Hosted by Sean Lafferty, the program travels across Pennsylvania as Lafferty talks with Governor Ed Rendell about how Act 183 will help end the “digital divide” statewide by 2015. Local residents of Philadelphia, State College and Erie are also asked about Pennsylvania’s promise to provide broadband service to even the hardest to serve rural communities. Governor Rendell’s Act 183, also known as Chapter 30, limits price increases on basic telephone line service and makes it easier for customers to enroll in the Lifeline program for low-income residents. Through Mr. Lafferty’s interviews, viewers learn that reliable broadband access is essential to educational initiatives and economic development and that Pennsylvania is progressing rapidly in the digital age.
