The cable industry substantially impacts the Texas economy by directly providing jobs and through its investment and innovation initiatives.

Cable by the numbers in Texas:

Job growth – in the state and nationally is predicted by cable analysts to increase:

  • Cable companies are branching into new service areas beyond traditional video, broadband and home phone. 
    • Comcast, Charter Spectrum and Altice USA – all of which serve Texans – are offering or preparing to offer mobile phone services. 
    • Cable operators also are expanding into home security and home automation, which will only grow as more devices become broadband connected through the “Internet of Things.” 
    • Comcast is set to become the first cable company to get into the home insurance business.
  • Cable providers continue to invest billions of dollars to upgrade networks and deliver new technologies to their customers. This requires additional skilled technicians.
