Cable's broadband count will increase by additional 3.4M subs in 2016, says research firm

Cable operators will continue their healthy broadband subscriber roll this year, beating out telcos particularly in areas where they can only offer slower copper-based DSL services. A new research note from Evercore has forecast that the cable industry will add an additional 3.4 million broadband subscribers in 2016.

Specifically, the financial firm says that three cable operators -- Comcast (projected to add 380,000 HSI customers in Q1), Time Warner Cable (280,000) and Charter Communications (119,000) -- will drive the growth.
