Governor Abbott Celebrates Charter Communications’ $1.3 Billion Broadband Expansion In Texas
30 Nov 2023
Governor Greg Abbott today celebrated Charter Communications announcing plans to invest $1.3 billion to upgrade and expand broadband infrastructure and technology across Texas in Harlingen. This investment will help Charter Communications deliver symmetrical and multi-gigabit speeds across the state, while also funding rural broadband expansion for unserved and underserved homes and small businesses in Texas.
“Texas is poised to bring broadband to every corner of the state, but we can't do that without our industry partners,” said Governor Abbott. “Today's $1.3 billion investment in infrastructure and technology from Charter will help bring broadband access to more Texans. With this new investment, Texans who live across the big and beautiful reaches of our great state will have the same internet access that those in big cities do. That is a critical tool to keep our economy booming, children learning, and families connected to the best healthcare facilities in the world. I thank Charter for investing in the future of Texas, and for all the work they do right here in the Rio Grande Valley.”
