The $209.7 million Round III awards will provide 122,285 homes, businesses and community institutions across the state with access to high-speed Internet, driving in aggregate more than $341.8 million of public/private broadband investment.

This represents the third and final round of the program and the completion of the Governor's promise to connect all New Yorkers to high-speed Internet for the first time in state history.

Since the program's launch in 2015, Governor Cuomo has secured high-speed Internet upgrades for approximately 2.42 million locations statewide.

These latest awards through Round III of the New NY Broadband Program will close the final gap and bring high-speed broadband to all New Yorkers in every corner of the state.
