The first-ever Upstate Rural Broadband Conference will bring together hundreds of public and private stakeholders to meet, collaborate, and plan for these unprecedented funding opportunities. In 2022, Southern Tier 8 Regional Board announced its “Project Connect,” a major initiative to connect the agency’s entire eight-county region to high-speed broadband. High-speed broadband is the critical infrastructure needed to drive major economic revitalization and a better quality-of-life in the region.
