Clarkstown Joins Google’s Broadband Initiative

 

(New City, NY) - Supervisor Alex Gromack and the Town Board announced that the Town of Clarkstown is one of more than 1,100 cities and towns across the United States that have submitted applications to be a test community for Google broadbrand (high speed Internet). 

 

“The Town of Clarkstown is committed to providing residents various, state of the art services,” said Supervisor Gromack.  “This is a wonderful opportunity to give a new service to residents without expense to the Town.”

 

The “Google Fiber” project will build the infrastructure for affordable, ultra-high speed Internet connections in one or more communities, with the hopes of serving 50,000 to 500,000 people.  This will deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most people have access to today.  Google plans to choose the winning community or communities by the end of the year.

 

“Clarkstown is a premier community with highly educated residents who seek the opportunity to participate in technological advances such as this,” said Supervisor Gromack.  “We are committed to providing the necessary support to ensure that Google is able to provide this service successfully in the Town of Clarkstown.”

 

The Town of Clarkstown submitted a thorough application and in part of that process Google asks that the Town demonstrate strong community support. 

 

Town Clerk David Carlucci created a blog for residents to post their comments why it will be beneficial for the Town of Clarkstown to have ultra-high speed Internet connections.

 

“I encourage residents to visit the blog and show support because it will help make our application stronger,” said Town Clerk David Carlucci.
