This week on New York Now: Connecting New York at what cost?

The Cuomo Administration hopes to fix New York’s communication problem by giving everyone in the state high-speed internet access through a new program called Connect New York. 

Its goal is to make sure residents in the underserved urban and rural parts of the state can access the internet at 25Mbps and eventually expand that to 100Mbps by providing matching state grants to broadband service providers. But is reaching some of New York’s most underserved regions as easy as logging on?

New York Now is interested in your view on broadband access, so take their online poll (if you can that is...)
