Oconee County Commissioners To Consider Contract With Charter Communications To Expand Broadband Services

***Turnout For T-SPLOST Light in Early Voting***

Oconee County is preparing to enter into a $1.4 to $1.7 million agreement with Charter Communications to use federal American Rescue Plan monies to provide broadband service to 1,377 addresses in the county currently without access.

In addition, Charter already has been awarded federal funds that will be used to provide broadband to an additional 754 addresses.

As a result, an estimated 98 percent of the addresses in the county are expected to be passed by broadband when the project is completed.
