    Bartholomew indicated "Phase 3 of the Governor's Broadband Program supports extensive increase in broadband coverage within Warren County." Total investment, as shown below, is a combination of State grant award, private sector match, and federal commitment. The broadband companies providing service within Warren County for this expansion is principally  SLIC (formerly St Lawrence Internet Connection) and to lesser extent Hughes Network Systems, Inc. (service by satellite). Bartholomew also indicated that SLIC will become a significant broadband player for northern Warren County residents' broadband service. Additionally, Bartholomew noted that Microsoft is seeking operational partners for participation in developing white space coverage for certain rural areas in upstate New York including Warren County. EDC will continue to work with the Governor, state and federal officials on this key economic development initiative for Warren County.
