Parts of the more rural area of Malone that didn’t have high-speed Internet access before are now wired. Slic Network Solutions announced in late September that it has finished what the company refers to as the “Limekiln service area.”

The area was part of a larger project that also included Brandon, Bangor and Dickinson at a total cost of $5.75 million, the comapny said. The company received $425,987 in grant funds from Empire State Development during fall 2012.

Homes that can now have high-speed Internet access, phone and TV through Slic include 351-1071 Limekiln Road; 15-352 Travers Road; 61-64, 130-198 Gleason Road; 87-140 Pigeon Road;189 and 195 Fitzpatrick Road; 13539-13565 and 13632-13965 Route 30; 87-291 and 311 Riley Road; 570-722 and 763 Baker Road; 2-15 Ma Fitzpatrick Road or “Maude Fitzpatrick Road;” 600 Bloomer Road; and all of Clark and McCabe roads.

Slic, a subsidiary of the Nicholville Telephone Co., has undergone several projects to install high-speed Internet to unserved areas in the north country.

While the company was working on the Franklin County project, it was also doing one in St. Lawrence County at a cost of $30 million.
