The article reports on the increase in cable capex spending in the U.S. It shows that the industry as a whole spent $14.6 billion on capital expenditures, and it will likely to spend nearly as much on capex in 2008 to about $16 billion, inching up from 17% to 19%. SNL Kagan Senior Analyst Ian Olgeirson states that the multiple system operators (MSO) have done an effective job of reframing the capex discussion away from how much they are spending as a percentage of revenue going forward.
