As someone who’s currently typing this on a Spectrum connection, does anyone have an idea what this actually means for customers?
I’ve read a couple of articles, but they both were the same story rehashed.

I found this article with the potential aftermath.

Will I lose my cable/internet service?

No.

The commission’s order Friday specifically states Charter must continue providing service throughout the process to transition to a new cable provider.

“Charter Communications, Inc. shall not abandon any regulated service during the pendency of plan required to be filed,” the order states.

What happens next?

Under the order, Charter has to provide a transition plan to the state within 60 days.

That deadline, however, could easily be delayed by a court if Charter decides to sue. And if it ends up in the courts, the process could drag on for months or years.

Also, as a consequence, Charter’s purchase of Time Warner Cable may be legally reversed.
