Charter Has Moved Millions of Customers To New — And Often Higher — Pricing

Computer Hardware

After Charter closed the acquisitions of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks in May 2016, it moved 30 percent of the customers it acquired onto new pricing plans, resulting in many people paying higher prices. “Before the merger, Charter had about 6.8 million customers; afterward, Charter had 25.4 million customers in 41 states and became the second-largest U.S. cable company after Comcast,” reports Ars Technica.

Fewer PCs are being sold thanks to higher component prices

Computer Hardware

A strong dollar and increasing component prices have caused worldwide PC vendor unit shipment to drop by 2.4% in the first quarter of the year.
