Poestenkill Residents 

Are you connected? Are you on the federal broadband map? We need everyone to participate in the national broadband census to confirm the accuracy of their broadband service-millions of dollars in 

federal funding are at stake. All it takes is checking for your home or business address on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) national broadband map. Your location and internet services 

offered at that location will be displayed. If the information is incorrect let the FCC know by submitting a challenge in order to update the map. An accurate map will help New York State get its fair share of federal funding for broadband internet. The deadline is January 13, 2023, please visit: 


Thank you, June Butler Poestenkill Town Board
