Comcast and Time Warner is all about broadband

Om Malik:

If it is allowed to gobble up its number two rival, Time Warner Cable, Philadelphia-based Comcast will become the largest broadband provider in the United States, and perhaps the largest outside China. The two companies together will control about half of what is called triple-play services — video, voice and internet — in the U.S. The two companies together would have about 33 million broadband connections that brought in about $18 billion in broadband revenue during 2013.

The numbers are almost too much to comprehend.

    My first thought when I read the rumors was “well, there goes ‘cord-cutting!'” Thank God, my municipality contracted with a small independent provider.
