According to the FCC, 97% of Americans in urban areas have access to high-speed broadband, but in rural areas that number falls to just 65%. Charter is committed to supporting America’s rural communities and connecting them with the life-changing possibilities broadband creates. Over the last three years, we increased the reach of our 41-state network to more than 2.5 million additional homes and businesses, about a third of those were in rural areas. In addition, we’ve announced a $5 billion initiative to connect even more unserved homes and small businesses to reliable, high-speed broadband.
Broadband is fueling a revolution in how and where we work. Charter is delivering reliable, high-speed Spectrum Internet access to more Americans and empowering opportunity from coast to coast.
Broadband can provide life-changing opportunities and Charter is continually investing in our network to deliver faster and better broadband to more people in more places, whether they live in big cities or rural America. Investments in broadband technology and infrastructure are investments in the economies and futures of the communities that we serve.
