After the Angora fire, AT&T installed new fiberoptic wires and upgraded its system to provide DSL to people in the fire area. In December, the local AT&T Planning Department tried to obtain approval for expansion to all of the South Shore. In January, AT&T decided not to expand DSL service in the foreseeable future.

At the end of January, Charter Communications was granted a franchise for broadband by the California Public Utilities Commission and now plans to expand into the county subdivisions of South Lake Tahoe.

Many of you signed the petition campaign in 2006 to bring high-speed Internet to all South Shore locations. This list now needs to be updated since many got DSL after the fire.

If you do not have DSL available to you, or you would like updates about the services Charter provides and public meetings, send a message with your e-mail address, physical address and subdivision to Patti Handal at Your information will be used solely to determine the areas that still need high-speed Internet service.
