Why did the Township approve franchise agreements?

The Township’s hands are often tied by franchise agreements and federal regulations. However, Cranberry has always welcomed providers to offer their services in the community.

The reason? In short, it’s about choice.

For decades, residents have demanded more options and choice when it comes to cable and internet providers. This work provides those choices.

While the work is invasive, it is temporary. Once finished, providers will be better equipped to serve Cranberry Township residents.
