Charter Communications, Inc. announced a $250,000 investment in construction projects across Alexandria to bring its advanced fiber-optic network and full suite of services to more than 160 area homes.

“We are looking forward to bringing our advanced Spectrum services to more residents across Alexandria and expand access to broadband in rural communities,” said Melissa Morris, Spectrum area vice president in a July 21 news release. “Charter has a long-standing history of investing in our networks to better serve our customers, and that investment strategy enables us to deliver fast and reliable broadband speeds to more people in more places.”

Charter recently completed multiple construction projects in the Alexandria area ensuring more local homes and businesses will gain access to the company’s full suite of Spectrum Internet, Spectrum TV, Spectrum Voice and Spectrum Mobile services. Spectrum Internet offers starting speeds of 200 Mbps and connections up to 1 gigabit per second — with no modem fees, data caps or contracts, according to Morris.

Charter is continually extending its high-speed network to additional residential and business locations, as part of a commitment to expand access to broadband to unserved and underserved communities throughout its 41-state service area, Morris said.
