The evolution of technology infrastructure in major cities has skyrocketed in recent years. However, in most major metropolitan cities, some areas have advanced more rapidly than others. According to New York City data, approximately 40% of New York City households lack the combination of home and mobile broadband internet connectivity. Among that group, 18% of residents, accounting for over 1.5 million people, currently lack both in their neighborhoods. One avenue to bridging this gap is the utilization of private-public partnerships to develop the infrastructure needed to level the playing field for all New Yorkers.
