Broadband in the Capital Region Meeting Recording Now Available


Recently, CDRPC hosted a meeting with ECC Technologies to discuss the NYS Broadband Assessment Project. This initiative will yield an in-depth data inventory like no other, in order to help identify and guide critical investments for the expansion of broadband infrastructure. It is critical that local governments and economic development agencies are aware of and engaged in this process to ensure this work is leveraged for local priorities and future grants for broadband expansion and service improvement.
