Mark Eagan, president and CEO of Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce, spoke at the unveiling and said the Capital Region has become an emerging technology sector and is now recognized as such. He commended Verizon for spending $1 billion in fiber optic infrastructure.
"For so many of our residents, they have not had a choice, and we know that choice, not just in offerings, but also what it does to cost it is terrific for the Capital Region to now have that choice," said Eagan.
With the technology available through Verizon FiOS, Eagan said he is glad he has children to help him out.
"Thank God I have a 9- and 11-year-old at my house that will be able to help me figure all of this out," said Eagan.""
