The spinoff from Comcast and Charter Communications that is being created to help win regulatory approval for Comcast’s purchase of Time Warner Cable has a name: GreatLand Connections, reports the Associated Press.
Comcast announced the name with Charter, which will own one-third of the spinoff. GreatLand had previously been called either SpinCo or Midwest Cable LLC.
The company will be publicly traded and will operate Comcast’s cable business in the Midwest and Southeast, with about 2.5 million customers.
“The spinoff is part of Comcast’s commitment to federal regulators to shed at least 3 million subscribers and serve no more than 30 percent of all the pay TV customers in the U.S.,” the piece reports.
GreatLand will be the fifth-largest cable company, according to media reports.
