Additional sites with identical capabilities are being readied to launch later this year, providing access to most of Charter's network of more than 55,000 fiber route miles, serving thousands of fiber lit locations and thousands more "near-net" locations throughout its 25-state footprint. As part of the strategy, Charter has entered into agreements with carrier Ethernet Exchange partners to enable new, flexible options for wholesale Ethernet access.
