With us today to talk about Skywire’s approach to bringing high-speed internet to every corner of NYC is founder and CEO Alan Levy.

Skywire Networks - Standing Tall with New York

By Alan Levy on Dec 28, 2020 1:37:28 PM

Words can’t adequately describe what we all experienced in 2020. In early March and through the spring and summer, NYC was at the epicenter of the Covid-19 crisis.

Bringing Broadband to the Outer Boroughs of NYC

By Paul Harr on Jun 19, 2019 1:00:11 PM

In 2004, an article was published by a research thinktank called The Center For an Urban Future titled - New York’s Broadband Gap. It’s remarkable how little has been accomplished in the 15 years since the article was published. Sometimes you need to look into the past to see the future.
