NYSEG NEWS RELEASE-October 7, 2020
The Town of Chatham’s newly formed broadband committee under the leadership of town board member Vance Pitkin is charged
with determining what parts of the town have broadband coverage and which are underserved and to use that information to work
with other towns, the county and local legislators to bring coverage to those areas that lack it.
The committee believes that there are areas without service that are within a relatively short distance of other areas that do have
service and under certain circumstances the service providers will increase their coverage to include those other areas, sometimes
for no fee or in other cases for a negotiated fee. This is most effective if a group of neighbors jointly speaks with the service provider.
Town residents are encouraged to visit the town’s website www.chathamnewyork.us or the town’s Facebook page (Town of Chatham, New York)
and follow the link to the survey questionnaire which will provide information to the committee to address these issues.
