PORTLAND, Maine –-- Time Warner Cable Chairman and CEO Glenn Britt announced today that the company is expanding broadband services on the islands of Vinalhaven and North Haven, and the Long Lake area of Madawaska. The expansion means Time Warner Cable’s High Speed Internet, High Definition/Digital Cable and Digital Phone services will soon be available to residents of those communities.

The $1.1 million project, funded entirely by Time Warner Cable, will be completed by this fall. Once finished, Time Warner Cable will provide broadband access in all of the 267 communities the company serves in Maine.

The expansion will mark the first time that Time Warner Cable services are available to residents of North Haven and Long Lake. Time Warner Cable currently offers limited cable TV services on Vinalhaven. Once completed, residents of all three communities will have access to technologically advanced Time Warner Cable’s services – including digital cable with more than 100 high-definition channels, Video On Demand services, Digital Phone with unlimited calling in the United States and Canada, and high-speed RoadRunner Internet service.

“We are pleased to make this significant investment to expand broadband services in Maine,” Britt said. “Over the past four years we’ve invested more than $235 million updating our equipment and technology in Maine, further demonstrating our commitment to using our own money to build networks and connect people to our voice, video and broadband services. This latest expansion will significantly enhance the economic and educational opportunities in these communities.”
