Cortland Standard Editorial: Go, Dryden broadband, go

Cortland Standard editorial, published Friday, October 13th, 2023

Bridging the Gap Together, Delivering Broadband to Rural Communities

The Internet is the backbone of today's world, yet nearly 1 in 5 American households are unserved. $100B of federal stimulus is now starting to flow from numerous programs (ARPA, BEAD, RDOF), aiming to make high-speed internet accessible for all. Many regional service providers, utilities and municipalities already are building networks to support connections and bridge connectivity gaps.
