Pai, who has been promoting efforts to improve rural broadband access throughout the country, spoke with Cable ONE about its fiber deployment across the state, infrastructure investment, and Gigabit service, as well as regulatory barriers standing in the way of High Speed Internet expansion.
“We were honored to meet with Chairman Pai this week. He was well-versed in the issues facing rural broadband providers, and he shares our desire to ensure that there is no digital divide for residents of rural communities,” said Cable ONE General Manager Charlie Oakes. “Cable ONE is focused on providing all customers in Cable ONE markets with access to speeds from 100Mbps up to 1GB in an effort to eliminate the digital divide in the communities we serve.”
Cable ONE has invested nearly $85 million in Mississippi and $770 million across its entire footprint over the past five years on network upgrades and enhancements in order to bring the latest technology and fastest speeds to its customers.
“We know that our continued investment in improving and expanding our network will not only allow us to provide the speed that our residential and business customers need, but will benefit our communities for the long term by helping to drive economic development,” Oakes said.
