Schuyler County would like residents to participate in a survey designed to identify unserved and underserved broadband areas in the county. County Administrator Fonda Chronis said of the survey, “Connectivity is our future, so knowing where broadband is lacking is critical to our county’s growth and success. Today, good broadband is as important as other infrastructure like water, sewer, and electricity. This survey should help us determine where to concentrate our efforts.”
Chronis pointed to the recently passed federal infrastructure law and the Governor’s proposed “ConnectAll” program as opportunities communities can leverage to get better broadband coverage. Adds Chronis, “All levels of government understand the importance of broadband, and there is a lot of money out there for this purpose. In addition to federal and state programs, the County Legislature has earmarked significant American Rescue Plan monies to support broadband expansion in Schuyler County, and I commend them for doing so. Now is the time to identify our areas of need, so I urge all Schuyler County residents to complete the survey.”
