Nichols Fiber Construction is Complete!

I am excited to announce that our initial fiber build is now complete!  As of today (7/14/2023) we have over 250 active customers and are continuing installations weekly.  Our Open-Access Fiber Network in Nichols reaches 800 homes, 350 of them being classified as unserved or underserved by NYS Broadband Data.  Homes that did not have access to the internet can now access it at gigabit speeds; Residences that did have access to the internet, now have a local alternative to choose from.


This project would not have been possible without our partners. I would like to thank the Town of NicholsTioga CountyNYS ConnectAll and the New York Power Authority for the funding and assistance on this project.

Last but not least I would like to thank our local contractors H. Richardsons and sons (Ogdensburg, NY)National Cable Craft (Binghamton,NY)Reliable Telcom (Scranton, PA), and Zufall Communications (Ithaca, NY)

Without the hard work and dedication of these contractors none of this work would have been possible.


I look forward to continuing to connect the residence of Nichols to our fiber network!  As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.


Thank you,


Ben Rydzewski
