State Provides Money for Broadband Projects in Tompkins and Cayuga Counties
New York State is providing $14.5 million to nine projects aimed at expanding high-speed internet service to areas where it’s not currently available.

The broadband project will see 614 miles of new fiber optic cable installed to provide broadband Internet to 29,000 households and 2,000 businesses, the projects are mostly across rural portions of the Southern Tier and North Country.
 
About $2.2 million will go to Dryden based Clarity Connect Inc. to provide “last mile” service  which means the company will actually connect households to the internet. The money will be used to extend internet services to several communities in Tompkins and Cayuga counties.
 
The grants represent more than half of the total available for broadband construction from the state. In 2012, the state set aside $25 million for the program.
