Charter continues to lose cable customers to cord-cutting, and its landline telephone user base is shrinking even faster. But the Connecticut-based telecom giant is flying high all the same thanks to healthy growth in its Internet business, which helped it post revenue growth of nearly 5% from the previous year. Meanwhile, the company also has a fledgling cell phone service business, Spectrum Mobile, which existing Internet customers can sign up for in a bundle. Investors like what they see: Charter’s share price is up approximately 34% in the past year, hitting an all-time high of $377 in May.
