The case for Wi-Fi continues to grow, and cable providers stressed its importance in recent Q2 analyst calls.

Specifically, Charter Communications (dubbed “New Charter” for its prospect of acquiring both TWC and Bright House) CEO Thomas Rutledge was quoted as saying: “New Charter will invest significantly in both in-home and out-of-home Wi-Fi. We’ll deploy over 300,000 out-of-home Wi-Fi access points.”

Meanwhile, Michael Cavanagh, CFO of Comcast, echoed that sentiment in a statement regarding its wireless gateways, “Not only do these gateways provide our customers with the fastest in home Wi-Fi, they are also fueling our impressive growth in Wi-Fi hotspots, which now number more than 10 million.”
