The article reports that the cable industry in the U.S., now enjoying a period of relative stability and calm, could be squandering a brief window of opportunity before rivals in the satellite and telecommunications industries launch fresh attacks. Having settled down from the merger mania of the 1999-to-2001 period, it is relatively underleveraged and is increasing market share in both next-generation video applications, like high-definition digital, and for voice over-Internet protocol, which will put cable providers in a head-to-head fight with telecom companies.
