located on owned or leased parcels of land, and we generally own the towers on

business operations.
 
EMPLOYEES

only twelve employees, all of whom are senior management and are also employees
of Charter Investment, Inc. Pursuant to a services agreement between Charter

provide the necessary personnel and services to manage Charter Communications
Holding Company and its subsidiaries. These personnel and services will be
provided to Charter Communications, Inc. on a cost reimbursement basis. As of

INSURANCE
 
     We have insurance to cover risks incurred in the ordinary course of
business, including general liability, property coverage, business interruption
and workers' compensation insurance in amounts typical of similar operators in
the cable industry and with reputable insurance providers. As is typical in the
cable industry, we do not insure our underground plant. We believe our insurance
coverage is adequate.
 
LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
     We are involved from time to time in routine legal matters incidental to
our business. We believe that the resolution of such matters will not have a
material adverse impact on our financial position or results of operations.
