Having just witnessed the sudden collapse of Comcast’s Time Warner Cable takeover, Charter is already looking to assuage concerns of investors and the public about its own newly announced merger attempt. Tom Rutledge, who is Charter’s current chief executive, pledged during a conference call that New Charter would keep away from data caps and some of Comcast’s unpopular business tactics. “Through Charter, we’ll offer consumers a broadband product that makes watching online video, gaming, and engaging in other data-hungry applications a great experience, including at peak times,” Rutledge said during a conference call yesterday.
