One Word that Best Describes Me: Joyful
More than a year after it was announced that Charter was in talks to acquire Bright House—a move that would effectively create the second-largest cable operator in the country—Miron and Bergman remain busy adding services. Among them is the Bright House TV app, which is free to video subscribers. Just another way Miron and Bergman are ensuring the company’s 2.5 million customers remain happy throughout the pending merger.

What excites me most about DOCSIS 3.1?
DOCSIS 3.1 is such a powerful, high-capacity new standard for our industry, and I am thrilled to see its deployments beginning this year. DOCSIS 3.1 embraces important efficiency improvements and reduces the cost per bit delivered, yet it is also backwards compatible (and quite flexible and adaptive) with (to) preceding investments and exiting services.

Favorite Podcast: Re/code De/code. I love listening to this podcast on my early morning runs. Earlier today, I listened to Peter Kafka’s interview with the two founders of The Skimm.
