The article above states that the Department of Justice has just approved a merger between Charter, Time Warner Cable, and Bright House Networks. This merger will allow Charter to become the second largest cable provider in the country.
There are restrictions to Charter that include: no data caps or charging customers based on usage; and they cannot charge internet providers for connecting them with customers.
Why was this merger accepted? It seems to be pretty large and gives Charter a lot of power. Charter still need the approval of California's Public Utilities Commission in order for this deal to go through. Do you think this will be approved? What does this mean for the cable industry?
