The increased scale of a combined Charter, Time Warner Cable, and Bright House Networks will not only allow Charter to gain efficiencies to reduce costs, but to also better able to deploy new technologies to a broader customer base and allow a larger platform for actors throughout the supply chain to offer new products and services. The Commission should not overlook the significant technological and economic benefits that would come from a larger company. The improved ability to quickly scale new innovations throughout the country as well as the ability to better recoup the large capital investment needed to innovate, improve, and maintain a large cable plant mean that this transaction is likely in the public interest.
