Altice's acquisition of Suddenlink and soon-to-be-completed purchase of Cablevision (NYSE: CVC) will enable the service provider to potentially shake up the U.S. cable market as a major competitor to Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR) and Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA). By purchasing these two companies, Altice would have about 4.6 million customers in 20 states.
