HughesNet Partners with New York to Provide Consumers Satellite Internet Through the New NY Broadband Program.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo established the $500 million New NY Broadband Program in 2015 with a goal of "broadband for all." The Program provides state grant funding to support projects that deliver high-speed Internet access and is currently in its third and final stage, addressing the balance of New Yorkers without access. Before the initiative, 30 percent of New Yorkers were without broadband.
"We are pleased to help New York achieve its goal of bringing high-speed Internet access to citizens throughout the state," said Peter Gulla, senior vice president of North America marketing at Hughes. "HughesNet Gen5 plans offered through the New NY Broadband Program feature more data than standard consumer plans, free equipment and free standard installation. From receiving and sending email, to online banking, to remote education, with HughesNet, New Yorkers can stay connected – no matter where they live or work in the state."
