The company doubled minimum Internet speed to 200 Mbps in a number of markets for new and existing Spectrum Internet customers at no extra cost. Moreover, Charter’s Spectrum Internet Gig service, which uses DOCSIS 3.1 technology, is available across its entire footprint. These factors are expected to further boost subscriber growth, which is positive. Further, Charter’s All Digital initiative, which will help the company offer advanced products and services and enhance video picture quality is now complete across its entire residential and business footprint. However, higher interest expense hurt profitability. Moreover, the company continues to struggle in a saturated and competitive multi-channel U.S. video market." (3/6/2019)
