The Syracuse Community Broadband Initiative (SCBI) has received a $15,000 grant to explore the economic viability of building a state of the art fiber optic broadband network for Syracuse. The SCBI seeks to pro¬¬vide cable, internet, and phone service to residents and businesses. The network would operate like a public utility committed to the best service at the least cost; and would operate from subscriber revenue independent of tax payer subsidies.
