Network Buildout is Part of Spectrum’s $5 Billion, Multiyear Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) Investment in Rural Broadband 

DODGE COUNTY, Wisc. — Spectrum, the #1 rural internet provider in the nation*, today announced the launch of Spectrum Internet, Mobile, TV and Voice services to 650 homes and small businesses throughout rural Dodge County, Wisconsin.

Spectrum’s newly constructed fiber-optic network buildout includes parts of the following towns: Clyman, Emmet, Lebanon, Hustisford, Fox Lake, Mackford, Randolph and Trenton. This new service is part of the company’s approximately $5 billion RDOF-related investment in unserved rural communities, partly offset by $1.2 billion in the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) RDOF auction.

Local residents and business owners should visit to learn more about when their home or business may be able to receive Spectrum services.

The company’s RDOF expansion will provide broadband access to 1.3 million customer locations across 24 states in the coming years. Spectrum has also won more than $700 million in state broadband expansion subsidies, which, combined with Spectrum investments, will connect another 300,000 homes and small businesses.

“Spectrum is bringing gigabit broadband to unserved communities in Wisconsin and across America through RDOF,” said Matt Brown, Spectrum’s Vice President of Construction. “Our investment is making it possible to deliver the high-value broadband, mobile, TV and voice services now available in Dodge County. We are providing local residents and small businesses superior connectivity at highly competitive prices, backed by a team of skilled local technicians and 100% U.S.-based customer service.”

Broadband Speeds up to 1 Gbps, Plus Money-Saving Mobile Options and 85,000 On Demand Choices 

Spectrum Internet delivers speeds up to 1 Gbps and Advanced WiFi for residential and small business customers, featuring starting speeds of 300 Mbps, with no modem fees, data caps or contracts. Spectrum Business Internet offers customers 1 Gbps download speeds, with 300 Mbps and 600 Mbps options. The company has also begun a network evolution that will provide gigabit upstream speeds and multiple gigabit download speeds across its entire 41-state service area.

”I speak with people from all around Wisconsin’s Sixth District and know that access to reliable broadband has been an issue for many rural communities,” said Congressman Glenn Grothman. “Spectrum’s RDOF build out is continuing to bring high-speed access to connect rural Wisconsinites.”

Spectrum Internet exceeded advertised download and upload speeds for all tiers measured — even during peak weeknight usage between 7 and 11 p.m. — according to the FCC’s most recent “Measuring Broadband America Fixed Broadband Report” issued in January 2023.

“I am always delighted to see the expansion of broadband service in the 14th Senate District,” said State Sen. Joan Ballweg. “Spectrum’s project in Dodge County will bring broadband internet to hundreds of homes that did not previously have access to this connection. I look forward to more people having increased internet access in central Wisconsin.”

“Reliable and fast broadband is important for businesses and families in our area to grow and thrive,” said State Rep. Jon Plumer. “I’m thankful for Charter’s investment in rural communities, and excited to see their most recent expansion in Wisconsin. This helps build on the state level broadband expansion grants we’ve passed in the Legislature.”

Along with multiple broadband options, Spectrum services now available also include Spectrum Mobile and Spectrum TV®. Spectrum Mobile is the nation’s fastest-growing mobile provider** and combines with Spectrum Internet and Advanced Home WiFi to provide seamless connectivity inside and outside the home. Spectrum Mobile provides customers access to nationwide 5G at great value, with Unlimited lines starting at $29.99 a month, as well as By the Gig options.
