$2.2M for ‘last mile’ internet to county roads

File photo Greene County will provide $2.2 million for high-speed fiber internet to unserved roads and households.

CATSKILL — In a unique public-private partnership, Greene County lawmakers Monday authorized execution of three contracts with local internet service providers to assist with installation of high-speed fiber internet to unserved areas of the county.

Portions of the towns of Catskill, Durham, Windham, Ashland and Prattsville were defined as target areas by county officials, paying particular attention to the concentration of unserved roads on the mountaintop.
