Sides have "productive dialogue" after NY revoked approval of
Charter/TWC merger.

By Jon Brodkin

Now six weeks after New York government officials ordered Charter
Communications to leave the state, Charter has received two deadline
extensions and is trying to negotiate a deal that would let it keep
operating in New York.

The New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) voted on July 27 to
revoke its approval of Charter's 2016 purchase of Time Warner Cable
(TWC) and gave Charter 60 days to file a plan for transferring the
network to another provider. New York alleges that Charter hasn't
expanded its network enough to meet broadband deployment requirements
that it agreed to in order to get the merger approved. Charter claims
it has met the requirements, and it vowed to fight the order to leave
the state.
