"Charter will be a stronger competitor in the broadband and video markets, well positioned to deliver these benefits and more to consumers."
Competitor? With who? Where I am, Charter's competitor is Centurylink and all they have is DSL. Not much faster than dialup*.
I'm guessing my rates (Charter) are now going to go up so they can pay for this without affecting profit and exec bonuses.
*Tried them, got rid of them a week later as many times their network was so overloaded, I couldn't even get to El Reg.
