Livingston County has received $26.5 million from Empire State Development’s ConnectALL Municipal Infrastructure Program to provide high-speed internet across the county.

The Light Up Livingston project will build 340 miles of fiber, connecting over 4,000 addresses in all 17 towns and nine villages. This initiative, prioritized by the County Board of Supervisors, aims to enhance the quality of life and economic opportunities for residents and businesses. Board Chairman David LeFeber called it a transformative investment for the region.

Livingston County will own the fiber network and partner with local internet providers to offer affordable service. County Administrator Ian M. Coyle emphasized the importance of reliable internet for the modern workforce, and Empire Access CEO Kevin Dickens expressed commitment to the project. The infrastructure will be open access, promoting competition among providers.
