Charter Communications Inc., the nation's fifth-largest MSO, has joined Cable
Television Laboratories Inc.'s Go2Broadband service, a database being built to
help identify cable customers with broadband access.
Charter joins AT&T Broadband, Adelphia Communications Corp., Time Warner
Cable, Comcast Corp. and Cox Communications Inc. in contributing customer
information to the database, which is used to let computer manufacturers and
cable-modem retailers know whether a customer has broadband access and which
company is the service provider.
Go2Broadband will also give retailers the ability to sign up customers for
broadband service on the spot.
