Deregulation Imposed On Time Warner Cable Systems In Ohio

3/25/2008 6:10 AM Eastern

Time Warner Cable systems in five small Ohio communities have been deregulated due to the strong level of competition from direct-broadcast satellite competitors.

The Federal Communications Commission March 25 ruled that more than 15% of the homes in the communities were served by a competitor of Time Warner Cable. Indeed, one community, Liberty Center, population 424, was determined to have 49% penetration by DBS providers.

The other communities deregulated are Bluffton, Washington, Napoleon and Anderson. The latter is the largest city in the group, with 15,629 inhabitants.
