“Delivering Americans the 21st century infrastructure they deserve includes investing in the information superhighway and expanding access to broadband to help more people get news and information, apply for jobs, and access health care. The commitment by the administration and Congress to a pro-growth, deregulatory environment – including recent passage of important tax reform legislation and returning to light touch broadband regulation – has allowed Charter to dedicate more than $25 billion in broadband infrastructure and technology over a four-year period as well as continue to hire over 20,000 U.S. based employees. In the past year, Charter has also extended the reach of its high-speed broadband network to rural areas like Meeker, CO, Lakeview, OR, Hawthorne, NV and underserved and unserved communities across New York State. Charter looks forward to working with the Administration and Congress on policies that encourage competition, innovation and investment – whether it’s developing wireless 5G or innovating wired networks – to continue to bring high-speed broadband to more communities across the country.”
