by Ben Munson, CED, November 18, 2015.
The numbers are in for the third quarter of 2015 and according to Leichtman Research Group, cable is still way out ahead of telcos in terms of broadband subscribers.
The group's new numbers show that the top 17 cable operators and telcos in the United States jointly control 94 percent of the broadband Internet market, accounting for 89.5 million subscribers. But the cable companies in that group count almost 54.3 million subscribers, well ahead of the telcos' 35.2 million subscribers.
