As America targets efforts towards connecting every community to robust broadband – including the distribution of more than $40 billion in federal funds for building new networks – cable providers continue to do what they have always done: build out their networks to reach as many Americans as possible.
Here is a small sampling of broadband projects by cable ISPs underway as they prepare to deliver superfast internet speeds in communities across the Mid-Atlantic. Check out NCTA.com for other projects currently underway in the Midwest, Central U.S., and the Pacific West.
