We were pleased to announce earlier this week that we are welcoming Spectrum (the Charter Communications brand for its advanced broadband services business) into the US Ignite Smart Gigabit Communities program.

Spectrum has selected to work with St. Petersburg, Florida in partnership with both US Ignite and the St. Petersburg Innovation District. To kick off that partnership, the company hosted a press conference in the city with speakers including St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, US Ignite Executive Director Bill Wallace, and Spectrum Enterprise President Phil Meeks.

“It’s about all of us coming together to advance not just St. Petersburg, but to provide outstanding tools for our entrepreneurial community,” said Mayor Kriseman at the event.
