Charter Communications (CHTR) Company Overview

Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR) sells bundled cable, internet and landline telephone services to 5.7 million customers in 29 States.[1] Charter is the nation's fourth-largest bundled cable, internet, and telephone provider, but its revenues have contracted steadily as it struggles to compete with Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Cox Communications. These cable providers are larger than Charter, and as a result they can offer cheaper and more extensive services. [2] [3] [4]

Charter's economic niche is also threatened by a growing number of telecommunications companies like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint Nextel, and Bell South. These firms are expanding into video and internet services by partnering with Satellite TV companies like DirecTV and Dish Network, while also developing fiber optics technology that will enable a video, internet, and telephone triple play at much higher speeds than what's possible with current equipment. To put this in perspective, Charter is only the 12th largest telecommunications company, despite the fact that it is the 4th largest bundled home service provider. [5] The single largest reason Charter has reported net losses year after year is its $21 billion dollar debt, eventually led to the company's bankruptcy.
