Welcome to Long Island Broadband Exploratory Committee website.
Recently there has been renewed interest getting true broadband access to the Internet here on Long Island and the Committee has been working to make it happen.
Late last year one of our members heard that Consolidated Communications Inc. (CCI), our Internet provider, was partnering with some New Hampshire towns to install fiber to the home systems in their towns. We immediately contacted CCI and asked if they would be interested in working with us on such a project. They were and we met with two of their representatives in late January. While we do not have a concrete proposal from CCI they have outlined an attractive plan which is described on our A Plan for Long Island Broadband page.
In February we mailed a survey to all Long Island taxpayers and renters that was designed to get information about how we get our Internet, what we are using the Internet for and if we are interested in improving Internet access over what we currently have. We had an amazing return of over 200 of the approximately 350 surveys we sent out! Here’s a link to a page with the survey results: 2020 Survey Results
Things are changing rapidly. We will be keeping you advised on developments as they occur with this website and also via the LICA List.
