Southern Tier Network

Funding

The project has received funding commitments from Corning Incorporated and Chemung, Schuyler and Steuben counties.  The Corning Incorporated investment of $10 million will cover the projected capital costs for the project, which will use Corning fiber and cables as specified during the final design phases.  The Counties have committed the following amounts:

 

                 Chemung - $  789,945
                 Schuyler  - $  188,370
                 Steuben  - $1,227,786

In exchange for this finanical support, each of the counties will use the new network to reduce existing communications costs for public safety and interoffice communications.
