New York getting more money to expand broadband access

On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Governor Kathy Hochul, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced that federal money is being allocated to New York State to enhance broadband internet access.


The funds will be available through the American Rescue Plan, and the goal is to provide high-speed internet access to thousands of households and families across the state.

The senators emphasized the economic opportunities that investing in the internet can create. “It has lifelong impacts, especially for kids,” said Gillibrand. “Research suggests it leads to new business creation, lowers unemployment rates, creates jobs, raises property values, and improves health and life opportunity in our communities.”
