New Charter assures TWC customers its integration won't see Frontier-level chaos

Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR) has told existing Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks customers that they won't suffer the same issues that plagued Verizon (NYSE: VZ) FiOS customers after Frontier took over operations in three states in April.

A Charter spokesman told the Orange County Register that it can "take more time in the integration process and not rush to make changes."

As part of its integration process, Charter said it will convert all of TWC's local analog cable systems to digital over the next 18 months, rebranding it under the "Spectrum" banner. 

Charter's declaration comes as the cable MSO and Frontier are suing each other in Connecticut, where both companies are headquartered, over false advertising claims. FierceCable has this report.
