QUOTABLE

“We’ve always had an emphasis at trying to grow our footprint at Altice USA. We’re currently in 21 different states across the country with just about 5 million subscribers. So adding another 1.1 million homes here is attractive to us… We like cable. We think cable continues to be very attractive, has continued length and growth going forward. So this is something that is right in the middle of our wheelhouse in terms of things we want to continue doing.”

Altice USA CEO Dexter Goei speaking to CNBC about the company’s unsolicited bid for Cogeco for Atlantic Broadband.
