MAYOR SHEEHAN WANTS TO KNOW: HOW’S YOUR INTERNET ACCESS, ALBANY?

City is conducting a public survey to evaluate Albany’s broadband options

ALBANY—Would you like to help Albany better understand the broadband landscape and figure out what Internet services are available, what Internet services are needed, and how they might be made fast and affordable to Albany businesses and residents?

Then fill out the online Broadband surveys for Albany residents and businesses!

“Public input from a wide variety of Internet users is essential if we’re going to fully understand Albany’s Broadband needs,” said Albany Mayor Kathy M. Sheehan. “This survey is an integral part of the feasibility study that will examine potential options of broadband service, keeping in mind the goal of bridging any digital divide that prevents businesses and residents from getting affordable and fast broadband access.”

Broadband refers to any high-speed Internet access that is always on for smart phones and computers and faster than traditional Internet service. Important info:

  • Survey responses are needed by June 1st;
  • The survey is one component of the Broadband Feasibility Study being conducted by the City’s technology consultant, Millennium Strategies;
  • The survey will help Millennium Strategies design a plan for a better high-speed and affordable Broadband network for City residents.

YNG (Young Noble Gentlemen) Concert at Albany Housing Authority!

Performing Live at the

Albany Housing Authority Atrium

200 S Pearl Street, Albany, NY

Performance is at Noon

YNG (Young Noble Gentlemen) is comprised of one R&B singer (Lee Reh, age 15) and one Hip Hop artist (Rahmene McDuffie, age 14). Two different worlds never meant to meet; if not for the music. Lee Reh, the passionate vocalist whose voice was birthed in the confines of a refugee camp. And Rahmene, the lyrical rhythmist whose voice carried the struggle of growing up black in America. The moment Lee Reh and Rahmene met, it was clear their destinies were intertwined. Fighting against the odds, they formed YNG a group dedicated to sharing their message of resilience through music.
