"With the changing nature of work, we recognize that high-speed internet is a must-have to
remain competitive in today’s workforce. I’d like our residents to know that we’re invested in achieving County-wide broadband and bringing it to all our residents as soon as possible."
- Livingston County Administrator Ian M. Coyle
'Light Up Livingston' is a Livingston County initiative that responds to the need for high-speed, affordable broadband service in the County. The goal is to provide the opportunity for access to high-speed, fiber-optic internet to every address. This effort is comprised of several phases, internet service providers and grant opportunities (where available).
The Livingston County Board of Supervisors and County Administrator Ian M. Coyle are dedicated to improving the high-speed broadband network to enrich the quality of life for residents, ensure that economic development opportunities are available for agriculture and businesses and have a positive impact on education, telemedicine, emergency services, the local economy and home values. Access to high-speed internet is no longer a luxury in our society, it is a necessity for all, which Livingston County is actively seeking to address.
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer visits Mulligan Farm in Avon to announce $11.3 million in federal grant funding that will bring access to high-speed internet to every address in Livingston County through the Light Up Livingston initiative.
