Searching for a rewarding career in NYC? There could be a position waiting for you at NYCEDC. ›
NYCEDC is pleased to announce the ConnectNYC Fiber Challenge, a competition for small and medium-sized commercial and industrial businesses with fewer than 100 employees to win free high-speed fiber broadband build-out to their business.
Many of the businesses driving growth in the 21st century require access to reliable, high-speed broadband. Through ConnectNYC, New York City and leading Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are investing in the city’s future as a leader in connectivity and technology.
Contestants demonstrating the highest potential impact of fiber connectivity – on their own business, nearby businesses, and underserved areas – will become finalists. Finalists will have a chance to win a free build-out of fiber internet connectivity to their place of business. Potential winners will be required to sign a one-year service contract with a participating ISP at negotiated market rates before they are eligible to receive a free fiber build-out.
Apply now for this exciting opportunity! The submission period runs from Friday, October 19, 2012 to Thursday, December 27, 2012. To enter the contest, visit NYCfiberchallenge.challengepost.com/ to:
It is anticipated that over 240 businesses will receive fiber wiring over the course of the two-year program, an overall value of $12M invested in the City’s broadband infrastructure across two competitions.
