New York regulators have approved a settlement with Charter Communications resolving a dispute over rural broadband.
The state's Public Service Commission endorsed the deal Thursday.
Under the terms, Charter must follow through on promises to provide broadband to 145,000 upstate customers — an investment estimated to exceed $600 million — and pay the state $12 million for other broadband projects.
Regulators voted last year to rescind approval for Charter's 2016 merger with Time Warner Cable following concerns it wasn't meeting promises to expand high-speed internet.
