Comcast Cashes in on a Growing Lack of Broadband Competition

Comcast’s latest earnings report continues to indicate strong broadband growth at the company, but the slow, steady continued erosion of the company’s traditional cable TV subscriber base. The company’s fourth quarter earnings report indicates Comcast added 350,000 net broadband subscribers during the quarter, largely thanks to the dwindling competition it’s facing as AT&T, Verizon, Windstream, CenturyLink and Frontier all struggle (or outright refuse) to upgrade aging DSL lines. As a result, Comcast’s enjoying a bigger broadband monopoly in many markets than ever.
