 What is NYCCF?

 New York City Community Fiber (NYCCF) is a grassroots non-profit
 telecommunications initiative seeking to construct and maintain
 community-owned optical networks in New York City.

 It is the goal of NYCCF to construct optical networks in a manner that
 is faster both in terms of service availability (time to deployment)
 and network capacity (connectivity speeds) while at the same time
 providing a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO) on a
 10-20 year time frame.

 In parallel with technical and financial modeling, NYCCF has been
 actively reaching out to community-based academic and service-based
 organizations. NYCCF has had discussions with=A0 CUNY, SUNY, NYSERnet,
 the National Science Foundation, Manhattan College, NYIT, the New York
 Public Library, Mount Hope Housing Company, Fordham University and
 NYU, among many others, and invites all community-based organizations
 to come out for an evening of business plan discussion and optical
 network construction planning.

 If this sounds of interest, we hope you'll join us=A0on September 9th.
