Building upon Shentel Business' broad customer portfolio that includes many higher education institutions, this partnership provides York College with significant cost-savings, the infrastructure to stay connected during remote learning, and faster speeds on campus.
York College enlisted Shentel Business to ensure high-speed, dedicated internet access at a time when colleges across the nation are facing bandwidth challenges in supporting remote learning during COVID-19.
