“Today the New York Department of Public Service jointly filed a proposed agreement with Charter Communications Inc. to resolve disputes over the network expansion conditions imposed by the Public Service Commission. This proposed agreement will now be issued for a 60-day public comment period and remains subject to review and final action by the Public Service Commission. Pursuant to the agreement, Charter would expand its network to provide high-speed broadband service to 145,000 residences and businesses entirely in upstate New York; the network expansion would be completed by Sept. 30, 2021 in accordance with a schedule providing frequent interim enforceable milestone requirements; and Charter will pay $12 million to expand broadband service to additional unserved and underserved premises. If approved by the Public Service Commission, the proposed agreement will allow the parties to move forward with the critical work of expanding access to broadband.”
