2,000 miles of high-speed internet cable for Southern Tier

LITTLE VALLEY — Armstrong Telecommunications, an Addison-based company, plans to string 2,000 miles of fiber optic cable across Cattaraugus, Allegany and Steuben counties by the end of the year.

An Armstrong representative, general manager John Beaver, spoke to members of the Cattaraugus County legislature’s Development and Agriculture Wednesday.

Beaver said the small company with New York headquarters near Corning, was awarded targeted census tracts in Phase 2 of the New NY Broadband Program in the three counties, plus adjacent areas in Wyoming and Livingston counties.
