Charter Spectrum could be staying in New York State


New York state regulators who ordered Spectrum TV to close up shop and get out are now giving that order a second look. 

They are cleaning up the unfinished business left over from Spectrum’s parent, Charter Communications, buying out Time Warner Cable back in 2016. 

The state’s Public Service Commission allowed the merger under certain conditions. 

Last year, the public service commission ruled Charter had not met those conditions and withdrew its permission. 

Charter Communications assured the public service commssion it would build out its Spectrum Cable Network and high speed internet to thousands of new customers in unserved or underserved areas of the state. 

Spectrum is the largest cable TV provider in the state, and one of the largest cable operators in the country.

The PSC’s revocation order got a lukewarm reception from local officials across the state asking, if Spectrum had to leave, who would take its place?

No deadline has been set for reaching a decision on Spectrum’s future in New York.
