Time Warner Cable switching to Spectrum name

Time Warner Cable customers, get ready for a new name on your cable bills: Spectrum.

It’s the new identity for the expanded cable system resulting from Charter Communications’ $55.1 billion acquisition of Time Warner. Since Charter also bought another system, Bright House Networks, for $10.4 billion, Charter decided to rebrand all the systems under a single new name.

Spectrum becomes the second-largest cable company in the nation, with 24 million customers in 41 states, providing TV, Internet and phone services. It has 90,000 employees.

“You will soon have access to the most advanced, fiber-rich network in the nation,” said Tom Rutledge, the CEO, in a letter to customers. Rutledge also said the company is “bringing over 100,000 outsourced customer service jobs back to the United States.”
