New Group Formed to Increase Adirondack Broadband Coverage
The Warren County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) has brought together a multi-county, multi-provider collaboration called the North Country Broadband Alliance with the aim to bring more coverage to our area through federal grant funding.
Earlier in 2021, the EDC initiated a Broadband Assessment and Survey that compiled data from over 1,500 online surveys. Results indicated five unserved areas in Warren County into the Adirondack Park.
“Working in a collaborative effort made us more competitive for the grant, as this is the first of its kind in our region,” EDC President Jim Siplon said in a statement. “Forming the alliance just makes sense. We all have the need. Broadband is no longer a luxury.”
Their National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA) grant application was filed in August and is awaiting approval. Homes filed for in the grant amount to over 3,000 across Warren, Washington, Essex, Hamilton, Franklin, and Clinton counties, with an anticipated investment of $20 from the project.
