The two links below were the subject of this week’s Technology Now segment with Matt Wiertel and Amanda Post.

PAIUnet Survey:  “Without Internet access and connected devices, many students in our communities lack the ability to participate in remote learning and complete homework after the school day has ended. In an effort to identify these gaps, the PA Association of Intermediate Units (PAIU) and Penn State Extension have teamed up to conduct a short survey. The data collected will greatly assist our schools with obtaining local, state and federal broadband funding to provide additional resources to our students and families. Thank you in advance for your time in taking this survey!”

If you've never heard of VNET, let's get you up to speed. We began in 1990 as an IT services provider (SOFTEK) and later revolutionized the region’s internet offerings with the launch of Velocity.Net (ISP) in 1996. Since then, we have grown to become the region’s leading internet, business technology, and voice service provider. Today we are expanding our commitment to the community by investing in a next generation fiber optic network - designed to deliver world class speeds and services, but with local service and support to homes and business throughout Erie County.
