The telegraph industry has been on the ropes for decades and has experienced two recessions in the last few years.
In 2015, the government imposed a moratorium on new contracts for the Telex network.
It followed a public backlash over the $20 billion purchase of Time Warner by AT&T.
And in 2017, the company announced plans to close its Telex wireline business.
Now, with its cable business on the brink of collapse, the telex operator is trying to turn things around by expanding the reach of its existing cable and Internet customers.
A spokeswoman for the company, which has been in receivership since 2012, said the expansion would include a $20 million expansion to the company’s existing cable service, which includes about 100,000 customers.
But the spokeswoman said that expansion would not be complete until after the new telex contracts are signed, which are expected to be signed soon.
The spokeswoman said the telegram service would be available for about 1 million customers in the next year or so, including new customers.
More: The telegram plan would not affect existing customers who are already on the telexts, the spokeswoman added.
The expansion will also include a 1.5 million-square-foot office expansion at a new site that would also house a communications center, and would be completed by the end of 2020.
The spokeswoman declined to say when or where the expansion was expected to begin.
