Charter Communications and New York State come to agreement

Tonight...charter comunications....the parent company of spectrum cable...has reached a tentative deal with new york state that will allow the company to remain in the state.

Today's proposed deal comes less than a year after the state ordered charter to leave new york because of not meeting certain obligations, including expanding broadband access to more rural areas.

According to new york state department of public service chief john rhodes...under the agreement, charter would expand its network to provide high-speed broadband service to 145,000 residences and businesses in upstate new york.

Charter will pay $12 million to expand broadband service to additional unserved and underserved premises.

There will be a 60-day public comment period and the agreement remains subject to review and final action by the public service commission.

Congressman anthony brindisi released a statement to news channel two tonight regarding the proposed deal.... he said quote...."news of a new deal between the state and charter doesn't exactly deliver a sigh of relief.

People across our area are sick and tired of the hiking bills, lackluster service and broken promises.

I plan to review every word of this proposal and continue to watch this company like a hawk at the federal level.

They are not going to skate for failing to live upo the promisesi was elected, in part, to hold them accountableand that's exactly what i will continue to do."

Again the agreement must now be approved by the new york state public service commission.
