Last Wednesday, Gov. Cuomo held a series of events around the state in which he announced the New NY Broadband Program’s Round I awards, which will connect 34,000 homes to high-speed internet for the first time, and the launch of Round II of the program.  Round II Request for Proposal Guidelines and application questions are now available through the state Broadband Program Office.

Gov. Cuomo said:

“Access to high-speed internet is critical to keeping pace with the rising demands of the modern economy.  The New NY Broadband Program is advancing our vision for inclusive, interconnected communities that empower individuals, support small businesses, and advance innovation. These actions are a major step forward in creating the most robust broadband infrastructure network in the nation, and ensuring that reliable, high-speed internet is available to all New Yorkers.”
