Recently it was acquired by Charter communications in May’16, and the company was formed through the merger of Time Inc’s cable television company and Warner cable. It was previously operating under Time warner brand only but in 2009 Time Warner spun off their cable division and TWC was formed.


It is headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, New-York city. The company provides high speed data, voice and video services in 29 states of USA. TWC serves around 16 million business and residential customers. It also offers cell tower backhaul services, enterprise-class, cloud-enabled hosting, managed applications and services etc.

TWC has very superior technology and 9 Emmy awards for outstanding achievement in technological development bolster it. Recently Charter communications has completed its purchase of Time Warner cable and intends to phase out TWC and markets it under brand name Spectrum.

The acquisition was opposed by industry players with a concern that the merger would not be benevolent for competition. So, hopefully we will hear more about Spectrum brand.
