Regulatory Discussion
New Charter will increase facilities-based broadband competition
New Charter will expand its broadband offerings for consumers by investing significantly in out of home WiFi, building on what TWC and BHN have already accomplished
We will invest significantly in building out our optical network beyond our existing footprint to inject much needed competition in the commercial markets
New Charter will not have market power in high speed broadband or video
Transaction does not reduce any competition in any market
The combined entities today estimated to serve less than 30% of broadband customers receiving 25 Mbps or greater speeds nationwide
Similarly, New Charter will serve only about 17% of MVPD subscribers nationwide
Charter owns no programming interests
New Charter will have the largest cable presence in only 5 of the top 20 DMAs. The transaction does not change this metric, as TWC and BHN are already affiliated, and Charter isn’t the largest operator in any of the top 20 DMAs.
New Charter will be a strong competitor and be a leader in developing open non-proprietary technical standards, prices and industry practices
