Adelphia Communications Corporation Company Profile
Brother, can you spare a cable system? Until 2006 Adelphia (Greek for "brother") Communications provided cable TV service to about 5 million subscribers in 31 US states and Puerto Rico. It also offered digital TV over its upgraded cable systems to 1.8 million subscribers and broadband Internet access to another 1 million. Adelphia grew rapidly through acquisitions, but the Rigas family was forced to give up control of the company in 2002, and Adelphia filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection that year. (Founder John Rigas and son Timothy were convicted on fraud charges in 2004.) Instead of trying to continue on its own, Adelphia sold all of its assets to Time Warner Cable (TWC) and Comcast.
