    Charter Statement on FCC’s Proceeding on Resolving Pole Replacement Disputes

    Charter applauds the FCC’s continued steps forward to facilitate broadband deployment across the U.S. through timely, fair, and cost-effective access to utility poles. Pole attachment regulation significantly impacts how quickly a provider is able to connect families and small businesses to high-speed internet service, especially in unserved, rural areas that require access to multiple poles to connect each home.

    Statement on the FCC’s Open Meeting Agenda Item: Facilitating the Deployment of Broadband Infrastructure

    Pole attachment regulation significantly impacts the length of time it takes to connect families and small businesses to high-speed internet service, especially in rural areas that require access to multiple poles for every home served. The FCC initiating this proceeding will be a critical step to achieving 100% connectivity in the U.S., because when poles can be accessed in a timely, fair, and cost-effective way, more people get connected faster.

    Connecting More Communities across South Carolina

    As the COVID-19 pandemic crisis unfolded, Charter worked quickly to improve connectivity for hospitals, small businesses, governments, schools, and other institutions. The pandemic forced many to stay home in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus—and as a result working, learning, accessing healthcare, and catching up with loved ones moved online. Unfortunately, tens of millions of households and businesses, including a significant number in rural areas, still lack access to broadband internet service. Charter continues to invest significantly in its network and in efforts to help bridge the digital divide.
