New York state revokes approval of Charter-Time Warner Cable deal

Yesterday, July 27, the Commission on the public services of the state of NY (Public Service Commission - PSC) announced that the company Charter Communications, which owns Spectrum, henceforth it is forbidden to provide their services to residents of the Big Apple and around the state.

It wasn't immediately clear what the rejection means for Charter.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's administration moved to ban Charter Communications from NY on Friday, ordering the internet, television and phone behemoth to leave the state and hand over its business to another company. During the transition process, Charter must continue to comply with all local franchises it holds in NY and all obligations under the Public Service Law and PSC regulations.

Charter has 60 days to file a plan with the Commission to ensure what the governing body calls an "orderly transition to a successor provider (s)". "Charter's non-compliance and brazenly disrespectful behavior toward New York State and its customers necessitates the actions taken today seeking court-ordered penalties for its failures, and revoking the Charter merger approval".

In addition to rescinding its approval of the Charter and Time Warner merger, the commission also filed an enforcement action in the New York State Supreme Court to seek $3 million in penalties for past failures and continuing noncompliance.

But when it provided its next update in December, commission officials said Charter did not deserve credit for more than 18,000 households it said it had connected, in part because many of them appeared to be located in New York City and not a hard-to-reach, less densely populated area. Specifically, Spectrum failed the commission's order that it build new service lines to pass 145,000 residences and businesses in poorly served communities within the former Time Warner Cable franchise area.

On Friday, the commission escalated that battle by revoking its approval of the 2016 Charter-Time Warner Cable merger, which would prevent the company from operating in ny and will likely launch a prolonged court battle. The commissioners voted on Friday revoke approval for that merger, effectively barring the company from continuing to operate. "But the fact is that Spectrum has extended the reach of our advanced broadband network to more than 86,000 NY homes and businesses since our merger agreement with the PSC".

According to the PSC, not only has Charter failed to meet the conditions of the approval, the company also has claimed it is not bound by the terms of the approval. The company must also work with whatever service provider the state of NY selects to replace Spectrum of Charter Communications, which is even further punishment for the various wrongdoings Spectrum committed over the past few years. It provides digital cable television, broadband internet and VoIP telephone service to more than 2 million subscribers.
