On January 11, New York State issued a $500 million solicitation for private sector partners to join the New NY Broadband Program, with a focus on unserved and underserved areas. The program calls for applications for funding to provide access to broadband at speeds of at least 100 Mpbs in most places, and 25 Mpbs in the most remote areas, with priority given to applications that will provide broadband to unserved communities, libraries and SUNY-affiliated institutions. The program will require a private sector co-investment and will only support projects that were not part of an applicant’s capital expenditure plan prior to filing.
