FEBRUARY NEWSLETTER
GROWING CABLE BROADBAND

Cable is the  leading broadband provider in Texas and the nation, with about two-thirds of all high-speed internet subscribers. In fact, as of this year  80 percent of U.S. households can now receive gigabit service through cable. And the Texas Cable Association strongly supports the continued expansion of broadband service in the state.

As cable continues to add broadband subscribers in Texas and across the country, it isn’t just about numbers. It’s also about following a set of principles for responsible broadband deployment, especially in Texas which has the  second highest number of broadband subscribers in the United States. These principles will be guiding the Texas Cable Association, its member companies and the Texas Legislature as it considers ways to expand broadband to those who do not have access.

One Year Later: How Charter’s $15 Minimum Wage Has Made Us a Stronger Company
Almost a year ago, Charter announced its intention to ensure all of our employees are paid a minimum wage of at least $15 per hour, including target commissions. As a result, approximately 14,000 hourly employees had their wages increased and all new hires receive a $15 per hour minimum wage as well.

Charter has seen our business continue to thrive when we invest in our employees so they can grow their careers and succeed with us.
