Network Buildout is Part of Spectrum’s Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) and Granting Unserved Municipalities Broadband Opportunities (GUMBO) Grant Investments in Rural Broadband

FRANKLINTON, La. — Spectrum, the #1 rural internet provider in the nation*, today announced the launch of Spectrum Internet, Mobile, TV and Voice services to more than 4,000 homes and small businesses in Washington, Tangipahoa, and St. Tammany Parishes, Louisiana. Spectrum’s newly constructed fiber-optic network buildout is part of the company’s RDOF and GUMBO grant-related investments in unserved rural communities.

“As a member of the Senate Committee on Education, a mother, and grandmother, ensuring my constituents have the educational tools and resources they need is very important to me,” said state Senator Beth Mizell. “Today, internet access is an essential tool for success, and Spectrum’s efforts to expand broadband infrastructure to our most rural areas is true commitment to helping bridge the digital divide for our students and lifetime learners. I look forward to seeing my District and all of rural Louisiana totally connected.”

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 investment, will connect another 300,000 homes and small businesses.

“It’s an exciting day for our residents now that Spectrum’s connectivity services are available to rural Tangipahoa Parish families and small businesses that have lacked access to high-speed internet for too long,” said Parish President Robby Miller. “We look forward to continuing broadband expansion projects until every address has access.”

“Spectrum is bringing gigabit broadband to unserved communities in Louisiana and across America through RDOF,” said Tim Williams, Vice President of Construction leading Spectrum’s expansions. “Our investment is making it possible to deliver the high-value broadband, mobile, TV and voice services now available in the New Orleans area. 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.”

“Internet is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity, and St. Tammany Parish residents deserve access to quality internet,” said Parish President Mike Cooper. “Spectrum’s latest buildout is bringing that connectivity to their doorsteps, bringing our citizens closer to their loved ones, businesses, healthcare providers and more.”
