The low income internet program is national

Jon writes:
The low income program is a national program not just for New York. All major cable companies have agreed to participate.

It's a partnership Here is part of the original release from Connect2Compete: "Connect to Compete is a national private and nonprofit sector partnership created to increase broadband adoption and digital literacy training in disadvantaged communities throughout the United States. The initiative is designed to help residents improve outcomes in education, health, and employment through broadband opportunities and technology solutions.Connect to Compete partners include some of most influential corporations, nonprofits, think-tanks, philanthropic foundations along with key federal, state, and local government entities."

So it seems that State and local government as well as local cable outlets will have to get together for it to be available in Adair county.
