Spectrum says it has completed an $880,000 network upgrade in Fairmont City and Washington Park that allows for the launch of Spectrum Internet Gig and its suite of services for at least 1,700 residential customers and small-business clients.
The company celebrated with a ribbon-cutting event Monday that included state and local leaders and community members.
“We have a consistent track record of investing in our network to provide high-value broadband, TV, mobile and voice services,” said Rob Burton, area vice president, Field Operations. “We are now delivering superior connectivity to residents and businesses in Fairmont City and Washington Park at highly competitive prices, backed by an organization committed to craftsmanship and service.”
“Broadband access is critically important in today’s society and I commend Spectrum for their investment in Fairmont City and Washington Park to give more residents and small businesses access to a fast and reliable broadband, along with the full suite of Spectrum services,” said state Rep. Jay Hoffman.
“Illinois’ small-town communities have so much to offer, and the completion of this broadband expansion project further strengthens Fairmont City with Spectrum providing access to residents and businesses with reliable and fast broadband that is vital for everyday life,” said Fairmont City Mayor Michael Suarez.
