Entrepreneur developing Wayne broadband, empty storefront in Honesdale gets new life

“There’s an act of Congress that requires that rural communities like Wayne be included in broadband efforts,” said Brian Smith, chairman of the Wayne County Commissioners, who is a member of the tech committee. “Our aim is to leapfrog into the future and to give Wayne County residents a chance to benefit from broadband efforts.”

“There’s a good possibility that Mike will be successful but it’s still speculation,” said Stephen Lawrence, a member of the tech committee. “What’s best about this project is that it’s aimed at advancing the economic development of the area and that’s a good thing.”
