Schuyler County residents urged to take broadband survey



Watkins Glen, New York – In order to identify areas lacking broadband connectivity, Schuyler County is asking residents to answer a survey.

According to Schuyler County Administrator Fonda Chronis, “Connectivity is our future, so knowing where broadband is lacking is critical to our county’s growth and success. Today, good broadband is as important as other infrastructures like water, sewer, and electricity. This survey should help us determine where to concentrate our efforts.”

Chronis cited the recently-passed federal Infrastructure Bill and Governor Hochul’s proposed “ConnectAll” program as programs of support for communities that need broadband.

Schuyler County has also received American Rescue Plan money.

According to Chronis, the local government needs to identify areas of need, so he is urging residents to complete the survey.
