New York, Charter reach settlement over broadband vows

New York regulators have approved a settlement with Charter Communications resolving a dispute over rural broadband.

The state's Public Service Commission endorsed the deal Thursday.



Under the terms, Charter must follow through on promises to provide broadband to 145,000 upstate customers — an investment estimated to exceed $600 million — and pay the state $12 million for other broadband projects.

Regulators voted last year to rescind approval for Charter's 2016 merger with Time Warner Cable following concerns it wasn't meeting promises to expand high-speed internet.
