Kagan: Cable Revenue to Double by 2015


Kagan Research LLC sees good things in cable’s future.

“Cable's ability to pack its broadband pipe with a host of compelling services will enable the industry to better than double overall revenue from $66.5 billion to $139 billion by 2015,” analyst Renee Shaening said in a prepared statement.

Kagan also projected that the industry will lift subscriber intake from $80 per month in 2005 to past the $100 mark as early as 2008, as customers subscribe to more services.

The researcher sees voice-over-Internet-protocol subscribers reaching 29 million in 2015, resulting in revenue of $11.7 billion.
