Time Warner Cable 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, the company 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.

The expansion of broadband services at Vinalhaven, North Haven and Long Lake advances the goal of Gov. John Baldacci’s
ConnectME Initiative to provide broadband availability to 90 percent of Maine homes and businesses by 2010.

Work has already started on the expansion and will be completed in July on Vinalhaven, October at Long Lake and November on North Haven. The project entails installing new technology in all three locations, including nearly 50 miles of fiber-optic and coaxial cable with the
potential to serve nearly 1,200 customers.
