[f500link]Charter Communications[/f500link] became the second-biggest cable company in the U.S. after consummating its years-long flirtation with [f500link]Time Warner[/f500link] Cable in a merger last year. Stock price for the combined company, which this year rebranded its services under the Spectrum banner, has risen nearly 30% since January. In the midst of telecom consolidation, Charter has been the consistent subject of acquisition rumors—reportedly catching the eye of [f500link]Verizon[/f500link], Sprint, and France’s Altice. It’s likely the company will wait to see how its own mobile offering, slated to debut next year, fares before listening to offers from carriers.
