In this press statement, Public Service Commission regulators said on Friday, July 27 that Spectrum - the largest cable provider in ny - failed to comply with several conditions mandated when the state approved Charter's merger with Time Warner Cable, Inc.in 2016. This would prevent the company from operating in New York State and likely force it to sell operations to another company. New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) has not shied away from criticizing Charter for its delays; in May, he foreshadowed regulators' decision by saying the public service commission had initiated "legal action" against the company. Charter now has 60 days to file a plan with the commission "to ensure an orderly transition to a successor provider (s)", but must continue to serve its customers in the meantime.
The 3-0 vote reflected the commission's displeasure with Charter - which provides cable TV, internet and phone service in NY state under the Spectrum name - for falling short of required broadband internet expansion in the state, especially in rural areas. "Today's actions are meant to address Charter's failings and to ensure NY has a partner interested in the public good, not just lining its pockets".
Commission Chairman John Rhodes said Charter's "deliberate and sustained failure to perform.is simply not serving" the population meant to benefit from the merger.

Since the merger, the PSC said Charter has repeatedly failed to meet its commitments to the State, including its obligation to timely extend its high-speed broadband network to 145,000 unserved and underserved homes and businesses in less densely populated areas of the State.
That pledge was one of the "most critical" conditions attached to the merger approval, the commission argued in an order posted online Friday.
Charter also must pay the commission another $1 million in fines, on top of $2 million already paid. The company said it has extended its advanced broadband network to more than 86,000 NY homes and businesses since the merger agreement and is focused on continuing that work.

In addition, the PSC has directed its lawyers to bring an enforcement action in state Supreme Court to seek additional penalties "for Charter's past failures and ongoing non-compliance". The combined Charter-Time Warner Cable operation is the second-largest cable company in the country.
