Press Release


Stephentown Beneficiary of NY BPO State Grant

Stephentown Allocated $5.8m to Upgrade Town Broadband Infrastructure

Stephentown, NY March 8, 2017:  The town of Stephentown was allocated nearly $5.8 last week as part of a $27m grant to Fairpoint Communications for two projects to upgrade and modernize existing broadband infrastructure in Columbia and Rensselaer Counties. Supervisor Larry Eckhardt stated he was pleased with the support that the town has received through the NY Broadband Program Office (BPO). All the census tracts in Stephentown meet the FCC and BPO definitions for unserved or underserved household and business units. As such all 1543 residential and business units in town will be eligible to receive upgraded and high quality connections to the internet and other broadband services provided by FairPoint. Eckhardt said. “These awards will provide homes and businesses in Stephentown with access to the high-speed internet access required to participate and succeed in the modern economy, and are a major step toward broadband for all in Stephentown.”


About the New NY Broadband Program

Recognizing the importance of broadband infrastructure and building on prior State investments in broadband deployment, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in 2015, with legislative support, established the $500 million New NY Broadband Program. The Program provides New York State grant funding to support projects that deliver high-speed Internet access to Unserved and Underserved areas of the State, with priority to Unserved areas, Libraries, and Educational Opportunity Centers. Town Councilman Gerry Robinson who chaired the town’s Comprehensive Planning Committee’s subcommittee on Broadband Infrastructure stated “the grant resources will provide an important helping hand to meeting the identified needs for broadband infrastructure improvements identified in a survey that was conducted last Summer. It will also be an important lift to the other social, educational and economic goals of the town’s comprehensive planning process, now underway. The Fairpoint infrastructure developments are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.
