High-speed Internet comes to rural Cattaraugus County

FREEDOM — The wait while data uploads on a slow satellite link is excruciating to those still waiting on access to high-speed Internet.

Ask Betty Nichols, who with her husband Doug and their family, run Nichols Farm on Route 243, straddling the Freedom-Farmersville town line in northeast Cattaraugus County.

Last year, the Nicholses installed a 24-cow DeLavale milking parlor for their more than 500-cow dairy herd. The system produces a lot of information about each cow milked that is uploaded to the Internet.
