CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Broadband service is being expanded to more than 89,000 additional homes and businesses in rural West Virginia.

The Federal Communications Commission announced Tuesday that its Connect America Fund has earmarked $38 million for Frontier Communications Corp. to expand service in West Virginia. Frontier received $22 million to expand service to 36,000 West Virginia customers under the program in 2013.

The Connect America Fund is part of the FCC’s initiative to bring broadband access to rural communities. Nationwide, the FCC authorized about $438 million to connect more than 637,000 homes and businesses.
