Spectrum, the brand name that Charter Communications uses to sell cable television, internet, and phone services, is planning to offer these in the local area soon.

Charter Communications provides services to 26 million customers throughout 41 states and is in the process of acquiring Country Cable, which offers service in Coulee Dam.

"Spectrum is currently in the process of upgrading our network in the Elmer City, Coulee Dam, Grand Coulee and Electric City areas," said Bret Picciolo, senior director of communications for Spectrum in the Pacific Northwest. "These upgrades will enable us to deliver enhanced service offerings to both residential and business customers in the area. We plan to offer Spectrum TV, Internet and Voice in the near future."

The upgrades include work with fiber and cable in the area.

"The upgrades we are currently working on are behind the scenes and will allow us to deliver an enhanced video product, along with internet and voice services, largely over the existing fiber-rich network," Picciolo said.

Picciolo was unable to specify exactly what will be offered and when, and said that information will be confirmed at a later date.

Spectrum does currently offer limited television services in the area, and the upgrades to their network will increase the quality of the available television services, as well as adding internet and phone services to what is available.
