There are approximately 1.5 million New Yorkers in households with neither a home or mobile broadband connection and another 1.9 million in households with only one of those types of connections. In January 2020, the Mayor published the first-ever New York City Internet Master Plan, built on a foundation of data gathered from federal sources, City administrative information, field observations, interviews with expert stakeholders, and more. The City now has a framework for decisions about public and private investments in new infrastructure and services to close the digital divide, promote equitable economic development, and address the unique conditions of New York’s diverse communities. In this session, you will hear from some of the experts that gathered and analyzed the data behind the Internet Master Plan. You will learn how to use that data to compare conditions in New York City neighborhoods and to inform decisions about what you can do in your community.
