Fast Internet speeds for Charter Communications’ customers moving forward?

Charter Communications offers minimum Internet speeds of 60 Mbps.
According to the Charter Communication web site, under the terms of the Time Warner merger and Bright House acquisition: "Charter agreed to a number of conditions as part of the FCC approval.  Many of the conditions either codified or reflected specific commitments Charter offered proactively at the beginning of the transaction review process, including no data caps or usage-based billing, a commitment to build out high-speed broadband service to unserved and underserved customers, the fastest low-income broadband program of any major service provider, and settlement-free peering. "

Hard to say if the timing of our TWC contract renewal is a good or bad thing. It will probably take a number of years before the dust settles, but maybe we can hit Charter/TWC up as part of the merger agreement conditions by the FCC to build out our under and unserved areas in town. In any event, TWC will soon be no more and for better or worse, Charter is the new game in town.
