Kinetic by Windstream Announces Expansion of Broadband Service in Oswego County

Kinetic by Windstream held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the CNY Arts Center in Fulton on Tuesday; the fiber optic internet company celebrating the emergence of their high speed internet presence throughout Oswego County.
More than 1,700 homes, businesses and schools in Fulton and nearby parts of southern Oswego County are now, for the first time, eligible for high-speed fiber internet, state and local officials and fiber-broadband provider Kinetic said during Tuesday’s event.
The project increases Kinetic’s presence in the area by more than 40%. Some 4,100 households in Fulton, Central Square and Phoenix already have access to Kinetic’s ultrafast broadband.
Operation Oswego County Executive Director Austin Wheelock said he applauded Kinetic for investing to provide high-speed internet fiber for unserved and underserved communities and Oswego County.
Kinetic’s investment helps close a gap between residents and businesses with broadband access and those without it, Wheelock said Tuesday at the announcement about the new service at Fulton’s CNY Community Arts Center.
“Closing this gap — this ‘digital divide’ — is helping eliminate barriers to opportunity and ensure that everyone in Oswego County benefits from equal access to the highest-quality broadband access,” Wheelock said.
Kinetic laid nearly 40 miles of optical fiber cable to bring high-speed broadband to the more than 1,700 customers in Fulton, Central Square, Phoenix, Oswego and West Monroe.
“High speed internet has become such a critical necessity for our everyday lives, yet this connectivity and the infrastructure behind it have remained inaccessible for many, for too long,” Greater Oswego–Fulton Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sara Broadwell said. “Broadband is integral to economic growth, job creation, global competitiveness and a better way of life. This expanded high-speed fiber internet infrastructure and eligibility is welcome news for Fulton and other communities in western Oswego County.”
“We’re thrilled to bring our fastest speeds and our best internet experience to more homes and businesses here in Fulton and Oswego County,” Kinetic New York Operations President Susan Schraibman said. “The energy and momentum we have in the marketplace are unmistakable, and we’re proud we’re able to bring our ultrafast fiber connectivity to more customers and the community every single day,” she said. “When we say, ‘High Speed for Here,’ we mean Fulton and greater Oswego County.”
The Oswego County fiber project is part of a $2 billion multiyear capital investment strategy to dramatically expand gigabit internet service across Kinetic’s 18-state footprint.

Scriber Elected Secretary of American Great Lakes Ports Association

William Scriber, executive director and CEO, Port of Oswego Authority (POA), was elected secretary of the American Great Lakes Ports Association (AGLPA) last week.
“This is the first time, to my knowledge, that Oswego has had an officer in the AGLPA,” Scriber said. ”It’s an honor to serve as secretary for this coalition of ports promoting maritime commerce and economic development in our port communities.”
Scriber joined the POA in 2009 as logistics manager and has been the director since 2017. Under his leadership, the POA has been awarded the prestigious Robert J. Lewis Pacesetter Award four out of the last five years for increases in cargo shipped, and the port set a record year in 2022 with shipping alone up over 300% compared to 2021.
Founded in 1977, AGLPA represents the interests of commercial ports and port users on the United States side of the Great Lakes. AGLPA works to influence public policies with the goal of fostering maritime commerce and related employment in the Great Lakes region.  AGLPA works to educate policy makers, media, and the general public regarding the critical role of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway shipping in the region’s economy.
The Port of Oswego's strategic location at the crossroads of the Northeastern North American shipping market, puts them less than 350 miles from 60 million people.
