Stocks tied to fast-internet expansion climb as Washington agrees to infrastructure deal

Stocks of cable, fiber and wireless internet providers get boost

Shares of several companies already working to connect rural America with fast internet climbed Thursday, as the White House and a bipartisan group of senators agreed to a nearly $1 trillion infrastructure package, including $65 billion to expand broadband access.

Charter Communications (CHTR) and Frontier Communications (FYBR) shares closed higher Thursday, after President Joe Biden said a deal had been struck with a group of Republicans and Democrats, and that a vote on the infrastructure bill was expected this summer.

Shares of fiber and cable provider Charter rose 1.8%, while those of Frontier advanced 0.3%. Cable and internet providers such as Comcast Corp. (CMCSA), AT&T Inc. (T) and Dish Network Corp. (DISH) also gained. The big U.S. stock benchmarks also climbed, with the S&P 500 Index and the Nasdaq Composite Index each booking fresh closing records.

Tesla Inc. (TSLA) shares gained 3.5%, perhaps buoyed by Elon Musk's other company, privately held SpaceX, which plans to provide satellite internet service through its Starlink project (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/spacex-launches-first-satellites-in-massive-starlink-project-to-beam-internet-access-from-space-2019-05-23).

Charter, Frontier and SpaceX were among the top 10 largest recipients of the first phase of the government's existing $20.4 billion Rural Digital Opportunity Fund in December, according to a tally produced (https://broadbandnow.com/report/rural-digital-opportunity-fund/) by BroadbandNow Research.

The program seeks to connect 10 million people in rural America to high-speed internet over the next decade.

The $1 trillion Biden infrastructure deal (PACE) allocates $65 billion, down from an initial $100 billion, to get fast and affordable internet to every American, through a mix of spending, taxes, unused COVID relief aid, 5G spectrum auctions and more.

"If the last year has taught us anything, it is that broadband is vital 21 century infrastructure," said Shirley Bloomfield, chief executive of the Rural Broadband Association, about Washington's infrastructure deal.

In a statement, Bloomfield also urged "policymakers to aim high and invest in future-proof fiber technology built to last," while directing funds first to those in need, but also to coordinate "funding among the existing federal and state programs that support and sustain broadband deployment."

The association was awarded about $1.1 billion of funds in December under the rural digital initiative.

BroadbandNow estimated (https://broadbandnow.com/research/fcc-broadband-overreporting-by-state) in May that 42 million Americans lack fast and adequate internet, or about double the government's most recent tally.
