Cincinnati Bell sees short-term upside to Charter-TWC merger

In fact, Fox said the disruption caused by cable industry consolidation could foster a competitive opportunity to further enhance broadband speeds and reach. The Charter-TWC deal, Fox added, will give Cincinnati Bell more time to respond with a greater set of broadband services delivered over its growing fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network. FierceTelecom's Sean Buckley has a complete summary and analysis of Fox's comments here.
