Cable MSOs see broadband customer count jump by 3.3M in 2015, says research firm

Cable MSOs gained an upper hand in the broadband subscriber race in 2015, adding 3.3 million customers, giving them control of 61 percent of market share for the U.S. broadband market, according to Leichtman Research Group (LRG).

Growth was driven by Comcast's (NASDAQ: CMCSA) addition of more than 1.3 million broadband customers and Time Warner Cable's (NYSE: TWC) signing of more than 1.06 million subscribers. LRG said that cable operators accounted for 106 percent of growth in the U.S. broadband market last year.
