Bringing the Benefits of Broadband to Big Sky Country

Charter is committed to supporting our rural communities and helping bring the life-changing possibilities broadband creates to them. Recently, we gathered community and education leaders in Boulder, Montana at the Sweet Spot, a local café and small business, to celebrate the launch of Spectrum Internet, Spectrum Voice and enhanced video services in the town. The project brings Spectrum high-speed internet and significantly enhanced video services to more than 700 residences and small businesses in Boulder. Charter was joined by Jefferson County Commission Chairman Leonard Wortman, Commissioner Cory Kirsch and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Elsie Arntzen who participated in a discussion about the importance of a high-speed broadband connection for residents, businesses, the education community, and tourism.

Charter also donated 25 laptops to the Boulder Community Library to support digital literacy efforts throughout the community. From supporting the library’s classes on writing a business plan to expanding the library’s capacity during the 2020 census canvassing period, these laptops will serve as a critical resource for Boulder residents.

Boulder is located between Butte and Montana’s capital city Helena, and is surrounded by the Big Sky Country’s natural beauty. Bringing high-speed broadband services to Boulder ensures that residents, businesses, and visitors stay connected while enjoying all that the small town has to offer.

Since 2014, we’ve invested more than $32 billion in our infrastructure and technology which has allowed us to both expand the reach of our network and significantly boost download speeds. Bringing high-speed, reliable broadband to unserved communities has a profound impact on economic development, healthcare, education and general quality of life. Boulder joins other small towns across our 41-state footprint where Charter has made investments in the economies and futures of the rural communities we serve.
