Cuomo’s Costly State Broadband Expansion Would Slow with His New Fee Proposal

Reclaim New York Initiative offered the following statement on Governor Cuomo’s broadband expansion announcements today:

“The Governor’s broadband policies are an expensive mess.

“On one hand the Governor’s budget would drive up costs and slow expansion with an abusive new fee. On the other, taxpayers are forced to pay up to thousands of dollars per-house for the state’s super expensive expansion plans.

“The state is working against itself and making New Yorkers pay for it all. Only Albany could find a way to make us all pay more for broadband for worse results.”
