Charter Wants More Time To Prove Accuracy of Company Broadband Report

Posted: Updated:

Charter Communications is asking New York for more time to prove the company’s own broadband expansion report is accurate.

In a January report to the state Public Service Commission, Charter claimed it expanded its broadband network to 42,889 homes and business in New York, well above the required 36,771 locations.

State regulators disagree. After conducting an audit they found 14,552 were ineligible, noting that 12,467 of those new locations are in New York City and should already have high-speed internet.

The PSC then fined Charter to pay $1 million.

Charter is asking for 45 days, instead of 20, saying they need to investigate each address in question.
