CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS JOINS CONGRESSMAN MARC VEASEY, TRINITY RIVER MISSION TO PROMOTE LOW–COST,HIGH–SPEED BROADBAND SERVICE FOR NORTH TEXAS FAMILIES
DALLAS (Aug. 7, 2019) – As part of a continuous commitment to expand broadband access, representatives of Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR) are joining Congressman Marc Veasey and Trinity River Mission to promote the availability of Spectrum Internet Assist in North Texas. Spectrum Internet Assist delivers industry-leading 30/4 Mbps broadband speeds to eligible families and seniors for just $14.99 per month.
Charter representatives will join Congressman Veasey for a special ceremony at 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, at Trinity River Mission, 2060 Singleton Blvd., Suite 104, in Dallas. Charter will provide 25 new tablets and five laptops to Trinity River Mission for use in their homework/tutor program and STEAM initiatives, and representatives will explain how the organization’s students can take advantage of the Spectrum Internet Assist program.
Trinity River Mission’s primary focus is to promote literacy, augment academic skills, and develop educational success among children and families living in the largely low-income, Hispanic area of West Dallas.
Spectrum Internet Assist provides eligible customers low-cost broadband speeds three times faster than comparable services, exceeding the Federal Communications Commission’s definition of “high-speed.” Spectrum Internet Assist is now available throughout the company’s 41-state service area.
“Spectrum Internet Assist helps bring a whole new world of digital access and opportunity to low-income families and seniors,” said Kelly Mitchell, director, Government and Community, for Spectrum in Texas. “Spectrum Internet Assist is an important next step in providing true high-speed connections to consumers who would otherwise continue to face a digital inequality in this country. It’s crucial for broadband providers like us to play a role in bridging the digital divide so that everyone has access to the information and tools they need to succeed in today’s economy.”
To assist consumers with the eligibility process and enrollment, Charter hosts a dedicated Spectrum Internet Assist website: www.SpectrumInternetAssist.com. Prospective enrollees may also call the Spectrum Internet Assist toll-free helpline at 1-844-525-1574 for assistance.
