The Lancaster County Broadband Authority (LCBA), has contracted with Internet service provider, Broadband Telecom Services (BTS). BTS uses Citizen Band Radio System (CBRS) to power its high speed broadband network that is connected to equipment on the telecommunications tower behind the Lancaster County Courthouse.
The LCBA contract with BTS is the first phase of a County-wide broadband effort to provide unserved and underserved members of the community with affordable high speed broadband services. The 2020 CARES Act funding received by Lancaster County supported portions of the network deployment, and the LCBA/BTS contract permits BTS to provide the first 300 qualified subscribers with installation and in-home equipment necessary to receive access to the network. Unserved and underserved subscribers, or those who currently do not have access to 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload speeds through other internet service providers, are eligible to sign up for BTS broadband services. The customer equipment required to receive the BTS service will be distributed to the first 300 customers on a first come first served basis. Unserved/underserved homes in excess of the initial 300 will have the ability to sign up for retail services in the near future. Subscriber eligibility will be verified by BTS against the list of unserved homes maintained by the County.
LCBA is working closely with BTS to ensure its fulfillment of its contract with the County to deliver its fixed-wireless, broadband internet access service to the designated area in the County.
