Re: Barrier Beach High Speed Internet / Broadband 4 All Program


Dear Mr. Ahouse,


As a resident of one of six Babylon Barrier beach communities, I was excited to learn of Altice’s award of over one million dollars in the NYS Broadband-4-All grant program to bring high speed broadband to our unserved area.


I was, however, extremely disappointed to learn that Captree Island will not be receiving this badly needed infrastructure improvement.


Please take advantage of the opportunity to receive additional funding by applying to the third and final funding under Phase 3 of the New NY Broadband Program.


We also have learned that under the best circumstances, the installation to the initial communities would not be serviceable until 2019. Please do whatever is necessary to move such an installation ahead with all deliberate speed.
