What is Charter Communications’ New York State Broadband Expansion Plan?

In 2016, Charter Communications acquired Time Warner Cable.  In approving this merger, the New York State Public Service Commission established a number of conditions relating to Charter’s improvement and expansion of broadband service across the State.  Among these conditions, Charter has committed to offer upgraded broadband service – to download speeds of 100 Megabits per-second (Mbps) by the end of 2018, and 300 Mbps by the end of 2019 – to customers across its existing statewide network. Charter has also committed to extend its network to pass an additional 145,000 locations without broadband access at no State cost on a four-year schedule.
