Public Knowledge Welcomes New York PSC’s Enforcement of Charter-Time Warner Cable Merger Agreement

July 27, 2018 , , , ,

Today, the New York Public Service Commission has revoked its previous approval of the Charter/Time Warner Cable merger, finding among other things that Charter has failed to meet its broadband buildout requirements. Unless overturned, this action will mean that Charter will no longer be permitted to operate in the state of New York.

The following can be attributed to John Bergmayer, Senior Counsel at Public Knowledge:

“All New Yorkers deserve fast, reliable broadband, and Charter’s merger commitments in New York were designed to help bring that about. With this enforcement action, it’s good to see the New York Public Service Commission taking them seriously.”
