From past industry consolidation plays, does it seem both Charter and Dish (headed by Ergen) are aggressive players? Not afraid to attempt takeovers of larger entities.
Anyways if Charter does acquire Time Warner Cable, would that give them more sway over the networks?
But should we be even more leery of a behemoth like Comcast who already owns
a significant portion of the TV content (in NBCUniversal)? Many people still cry foul over the passing of that deal...
P.S. Not related, but is this true:
Charter responded with a statement of its own, saying that there is “no more friendly broadband provider” to streaming services. “Charter’s slowest speed is 60 Mbps, we have no data caps, no usage based billing, no contracts and no modem fees,” the company says.
No plans for data caps or metered access? No modem/emta rental fee? Best Internet deals are not hidden behind 1-2 year contracts?
Wow makes my Comcast (and TWC) broadband service look even worse!
