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. Small and medium-sized commercial and industrial businesses across the five boroughs are invited to apply for free fiber wiring.
Applicants 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.
Applicants who are selected as finalists will be required to obtain a signed landlord agreement providing ISPs with access to the building before they can be deemed a winner. We encourage you to begin reaching out to your landlord early to ensure that the form can be completed in the allotted time. If selected a winner, contestants 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.
