AdkAction Voices Episode 1: Broadband for All

2022 Tom Boothe Adirondack Intern Colby Fortin spent most of her summer working with AdkAction’s food security programs and helping to plan the Keeseville Community Arts Festival. During this time, she also created a series of three podcast episodes to document some of the topics AdkAction addresses.

In her first episode, Colby explores broadband internet access in the Adirondacks by talking to local experts about what broadband is, its implications on education and healthcare, and current projects to help ensure 100% of the households in the area able to have access to 100 Mbps broadband speed or greater.

As Colby shares in the episode, you can help with this effort by going to https://mapmybroadband.dps.ny.gov/ to ensure your coverage information is correct.
