Investing Billions of Dollars in Infrastructure and Technology
Last year we committed to investing $25 billion in capital infrastructure over the next few years. This investment will enable us to improve and expand our advanced network, create American Jobs and provide better, faster products to our customers.
Deploying more and better broadband
Since 2014, we’ve invested more than $25 billion in infrastructure and technology. These investments enable us to expand the reach of our world class network – including to more than 860,000 new homes in 2017 alone. By expanding our network, we are able to deliver fast and reliable broadband to customers in big cities, like New York and Los Angeles and small rural towns like Thorp, WI and Lakeview, OR.
Increasing Minimum Broadband Speeds
Charter’s flagship speed is 100 megabits per second (Mbps) in virtually every market we serve. We increased that speed 66% – from 60 Mbps to an even faster 100 Mbps – at no extra cost to our customers. Additionally, in a growing number of markets, we have begun upgrading that flagship speed to 200 Mbps.
While customers may experience these speed upgrades as if a switch has been flipped, they were made possible by Charter’s ongoing investments in infrastructure and technology. These investments allow us to better serve our customers every day, in ways big and small.
Delivering Gig Speeds
We offer Spectrum Internet Gig that delivers a 1 Gbps connection to customers’ homes in a growing number of markets. We will be rolling out this broadband service to almost our entire national footprint. Recognizing the importance of community institutions, we offer 10 Gbps to businesses, schools and libraries.
Enhancing our Advanced Network
We are continuing to upgrade our network to all digital across virtually our entire footprint, enabling us to deliver faster broadband, superior video with even more On Demand options and other innovative products and services to our customers.
Innovating wireless technologies
Already, Charter provides wireless connectivity with over 200 million wireless devices attached to our network, carrying as much as 80% of wireless traffic in the home and office. Beginning in 2018, Charter will offer a mobile wireless service to its customers. Operating as a Wifi-first MVNO, Charter will leverage its own pervasive residential, commercial and outdoor Wifi to enhance the connectivity experience.
