Insight, Suddenlink post positive earnings results

Insight Communications and Suddenlink Communications didn't deviate far from the cable norm when they announced third quarter earnings.

Insight said its revenue was up by about 7 percent over 2009 but it had lost 12,100 basic customers in the quarter. This loss was offset by a gain of 21,800 digital customers and 4,000 high-speed Internet buyers.

Suddenlink also saw revenues increase by 7.6 percent but lost 4,900 basic subscribers. Of course, that was better than the same quarter last year when 8,400 subs wandered off. The losses, as with Insight, were offset by a gain of 33,900 digital video subscribers and 24,700 high-speed Internet subs.
