The article discusses on the acquisition of cable operator Adelphia Communications Corp. by Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable Inc. in the U.S. According to Matt Harrigan, Adelphia's size relative to Comcast is an advantage and there will only be a minimal effect on the overall company if the integration does hit with few glitches. Chief operating officer Steve Burke asserts that the Adelphia systems would fit easily into the Comcast fold since they are already nearby existing Comcast markets.
