A Milestone: An MSO's Broadband Subs Exceed Its Video Subs

For all the talk of how broadband has become the core service for cable TV operators, famously by Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt in 2011, for many operators, the number of video subscribers has continued to exceed the number of Internet (or high speed data or cable modem customers). Charter, one of the largest US cable companies, hit a milestone in the second quarter of 2013. It reported 3.924 million residential high speed data customers and 3.917 million residential video customers. No other major publicly traded cable operator has ever reported that.
