U.S. Cable TV Firms Will Get 108% of High Speed Access Net Additions in 2016

U.S. cable TV companies will lead high speed access subscription growth in 2016, with U.S. telcos mostly losing customers, according to analysts at Evercore. Of an expected 3.36 million net new accounts, cable providers will gain 3.39 million.


Because of losses by telcos, cable will get all the net growth (more than 100 percent), with satellite Internet access providers adding 98,000 accounts as well. Telcos will lose accounts, on a net basis.

And even if it no longer is the most-important metric, cable TV companies continue to add voice accounts as telcos lose them.
